Musing Mondays (Dec.17)

December 17, 2012

MusingMondays5This week’s musing – courtesy of http://www.kwizgiver.com - asks…

Is there a particular book that is your nemesis–the book you’re determined to one day finish?

 

My answer: I don’t know… I can’t think of one, at the moment. Maybe “One-Hundred Years of Solitude” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I hated it, so I set it aside. But, everyone says it’s soooo good, and I feel like I should give it another chance.

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your answer in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks! :D

  1. You’re better than me – If I hated a book that lots of people enjoyed, I probably wouldn’t give it a second chance.

    Here’s my answer: http://danielleheartsbooks.blogspot.com.au/2012/12/musing-mondays-12.html

  2. I always feel like something’s wrong with me if I don’t like a book everyone else does seem to like ;). You can find my answer here.

  3. Oh I hated 100 YOS too!

  4. Nemesis has such a negative connotation but there is this one book…
    this week’s Musing Monday!

  5. I was not a fan of One Hundred Years of Solitude, so don’t feel bad. =) It was also really long for what it was. I felt like it could have been half the length and still gotten the point across. But that’s just me!

    Nice question. I had no difficulty answering this one. Here’s my MM post.

  14. The Civil Disobedience portion of Walden. The God of Small Things. The Tale of Genji. The (unabridged) Moby Dick. But it won’t happen ay time soon.
