No enthusiasm for Atonement

I don't think I can be arsed to read the rest of Atonement.

I feel disappointed in myself when I don't finish a book. But then again, it's not like I'm reading for a course*; I'm reading strictly for pleasure, and if I'm not enjoying the damned book, why continue? Bloody silly to persist, I guess. :D

Try another, that's what libraries are for.

I will try the other book by Ian McEwan that I got out, as he was highly recommended as an author by someone online. Of course, the one they recommended was called Saturday, which isn't currently in stock there.


* Not that I managed to read many of my course books when I was at college, I tended to wait until I went to the lectures and work out which ones aroused my interest and wing exam questions about those that didn't, by recalling my notes. Not a particularly diligent student, I fear. But I made decent notes. :D
