The Years of Rice and Salt by Kim Stanley Robinson

Ugh!

Very, very rarely have I given up on a book and failed to finish it but I gave up on this one.

It got to be so that every time a different book came my way I’d throw this one in the corner and read the new one. I even hit a point in the book where it said that I’d be throwing the book in the corner, but I kept doing it anyway. Finally it came due at the library and I gave up and sent it back.

It was recommend to me, and I liked other books this person recommended and I’ve ever read other books by this author I have enjoyed but I just couldn’t do this one.

Has anyone read this book?

Is it worth going back to and finishing (I was about 3/4 of the way through)?

Would I recommend it? Not so much!

    There are too many good books to read, don’t waste time on something you don’t like!

    I’m with Susie…..you gave it a good shot, probably stuck with it longer than I would have.
