Right now I’m reading The Passage by Justin Cronin. Now, I’m not the biggest Science Fiction fan but I enjoy the book
when I’m reading it…
…but the story just isn’t “calling” me.
I’m wondering if the plot is so far-fetched that I’m having trouble emotionally attaching myself to any particular character. I almost formed an attachment early in the book. To six-year-old Amy. But now that she’s taken a hiatus for the last two hundred pages
I’m not as committed to the story as I was.
Does that ever happen to you? You’re in the middle of a book when all of a sudden, well, you just don’t care who survives the Apocalypse.
Is it worth it to finish? Do you stick with the story just because you’ve invested in over 300 pages?
I do appreciate Cronin’s writing. But is this appreciation enough to keep me reading? We’ll have to wait and see.
