Reading is a very personal experience, and there are an infinite number of ways that people can react to the same book. When readers have negative reactions to books, we might choose to abandon the book and not finish it (DNF). I admit that it is rare for me to give up on a book. I think in 2012, I DNF’d only 2 books. Admittedly, I’m up to 3 already in 2013, but still it isn’t something I like to do. In cases where I’ve bought a book, I feel compelled to try and finish. I might start reading at lightning speed, hoping to catch the salient highlights or I might make myself keep going in hope that it ends on a more positive note, but sometimes I do have to give up on a book – often to keep my sanity.
There are many reasons for a DNF, and they are probably different for every reader. During the fall of 2012, I had to stop reading Suzanne Enoch’s “Rules for a Devilish Duke.” Now, I am a very big fan of Suzanne Enoch and her historicals (“England’s Perfect Hero” is one of my all-time favorite books), but haven’t been as invested in her latest series. However, I wasn’t tempted to put any of them down either. But the hero of “Rules for Devilish Duke” drove me batty from page one. He’s a duke who needs to marry by his thirtieth birthday and have an heir by his thirty first or lose his inheritance.
