This is just one of those things that I, personally, cannot deal with. I hate leaving things unfinished, no matter what it is.
I can leave them alone for a long time, for years even, but I will eventually finish whatever it is I am working on. Whether it’s a project or a book I’m reading. At some point I will make sure it’s done.
Books I really don’t like, I will therefore still finish reading. Not just because I cannot stand to see them unfinished, but also because that’s the only fair way to give a review; if you’ve not finished it, how are you supposed to give a fair and honest review?
How do you feel about DNFing a book? Yes, no, maybe? Let me know in the comments!
(DNF, for those who didn’t know, means: did not finish).
P.S. I’ve recently DNFed my first book. It’s been two years, I think I really should give up at some point… It does feel very strange and wrong however.
