"Revolutionary Road." Read a few chapters, then I went "I hate these people and I do not care what happens to them."

My friends call me the Mayor.
My enemies don't call me anything.  'Cuz they're all dead.

Didn't have to read it, the title was enough. Stop reading books you don't enjoy! Life is too short. I came to feel this particularly strongly after I started writing books myself. The writer starts with an empty page and they can put whatever words they want in whatever order. It's their responsibility to write words that make you want to keep reading. If they don't, fuck 'em, you don't owe them anything. Go read someone who did better.

It's not like there's a shortage of incredible literature stretching back over 1000 years.
