Do I Stay or Do I Go?

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.
