  1. In the past, I've hated a lot of sci-fi classics for various reasons but mostly because I found the setting and the way the story was told to be unappealing. I found it very hard to read Frankenstein, which is considered to be a pioneer in sci-fi classic. I feel it is okay to dislike acclaimed books if it doesn't appeal to you. My preferences matter to me more than what the world recommends as a great book.    

  2. Oh I have started and quit so many books. But one book that I am thankful for not quitting was The Alchemist. It was only about 180 pages but I just couldn't read it for a long time. I found it boring but somehow when I reached to the conclusion of the book, I ended up loving it!!
