A few weeks ago, Charles Gramlich said if he doesn't finish a book, he sometimes scans the ending. I rarely do this but I did do in recently. The characters were in such dire straits, and I do mean all of them, I wanted to see if any landed on their feet.
Do you ever do this if you don't finish a book? Because to me it means that the plot has intrigued you on some level. So what put you off then? For me with this book, it was just too depressing. Sometimes the plot was fine, but the writing was not. I know several women who always scan the ending first.
What about you?
