Chances are that it won´t improve, Char, and DNFing is the right thing to do. I have just decided myself (with the help of BT in one case) to DNF two books. Books I was looking at thinking "No, I don´t want to pick you up anymore".

Yes, yes, yes. I know you guys are right! I'm getting better at doing this, even though it goes against my grain.
I just can't bear to drag myself back to it again.

Next! :)
Seriously, if the book isn't working for you, it isn't working for you - rave reviews notwithstanding.
That's too bad, but seriously DNF is not a dirty word ;-)
Ahh,, I was really hoping this would be a good book, I have it on my to-read shelf.

Your mileage may vary, as almost everyone else loves this novel.
I will wait for it to come out at the library and then take a crack at it. If I am not sure I will enjoy a book that is the safest place to start!

Do you ever get the feeling that some books get marked as "important" and "great" then everyone is afraid to say if they don't agree. I haven't started this one... I'll get around to it, but I applaud you for being honest and telling us your experience. Thankfully, there are loads of books, and everyone doesn't have to love every single one.

Aww, thank you! I hope that YOU enjoy it. :)

@SoItGoes: Excellently put! Labels of "important" or "great" or "everyone else loves it" are meaningless when it comes to the personal reading experience.
I hope you enjoy the book when you get to it.
