I'm actually going through this right now with Anne Rice's most recent novel, The Wolf Gift. I got about three quarters of the way through ~ something which I had to force most of the time ~ and I just felt I had to put it away for later. I felt zero connection to the characters and the story, which was depressingly disappointing as I was SO looking forward to Anne Rice getting back in the groove of paranormal writing. However, I've found the book taunting me from my bookshelf, begging to be finished if only for the sake of finding out what happens. Right now, I find it difficult to form an opinion about the story, knowing I haven't received the full picture, and I'm starting to feel that I need to complete the circle and close the book for good.
Happy Reading Everyone :)
