In fact, not so much. The Booker-winning novel that topped a survey of books Britons own but didn't finish, wasn't dubbed "Vernon Godawful" for nothing.
I'm guilty, but I gave up after twenty atrocious pages.
Perhaps the problem is here:
"Far too often people are buying books because they think they will be good for them, rather than because they think they'll enjoy them," says . Rachel Cugnoni, from the publisher Vintage.
That's likely true, but fer Chrissake, that's why there's crime fiction.
