Books you can't finish

A recent survey lists the top 10 fiction and non-fiction books that the British public were unable to finish. Cue this interesting post from the Guardian's arts blog challenging their readers to 'fess up to the books they just couldn't get through.

Mine is eighth on the list - I've tried reading The God of Small Things no less than three times but just kept losing interest. I'm glad I stuck with Cloud Atlas though, the style of the opening story is difficult to get into but the pay off is amazing.
