Last time I tried hard and read 216 pages out of 768... then I gave up. Thing is, the story is intriguing, this strange man selling "things that you need, that are precious to you", that other people would consider junk but for someone is worth doing anything in order to have it. But I find King's writing kind of boring

John Irving:World according to Garp (maybe I just have to be a middle-aged guy to understand it?)
Remarque: Arch of Victory (It was the moment, when I realised all the Remarque books (except Am Westen Nichts Neues) are basically the same.
Some books from New weird edition (too much of unnecessary violence and sex) and some other fantasy and scifi books, their names I do not know in original (Mary-Sue phenomenon)
Lord of the Rings: I have bought all the trilogy, but I realised the style is very...indigestible and constructed. No wonder Terry makes fun of it.

Yes, yes, I know, a Sir T production, but I just have trouble getting beyond about page 50 and then I can't read any more of it. I have even tried on a train but fdound there was far more interesting things going on iun the carriage and so it remained unread.
You might, or even might not, be happy to know I still intend trying to read it through from cover to cover, but I find it very hard going. Dark Side of the Sun was far easier than Nation!
