This question sparked into my mind when a friend of mine tweeted on how do you shelf your DNFed books on Goodreads. Apparently, I became curious of why people DNFed. So, I asked again my bookish community, Pinoy Book Freaks United, the question:
WHAT ARE THE REASONS WHY READERS DNFed A BOOK?
- Kane: It’s getting draggy.
- Meryll: The book can trigger a book slump.
- Jessa: It was boring because the reader is still in a book slump.
- Joshua: Slow-pacing. Monotonous Tone. Or the reader just got occupied and got busy.
- Princess: Unbearable Point of Views of the Characters. Laziness.
- Jocelyn: Too long for their taste. Repetitive parts. Annoying Characters.
- Sheryl: Cliche overload. I already read something similar to this plot, character or setting.
- Danna: Too much hype.
- Cresel: The conflict is so meh.
- Morris: No character development. No reason behind the character’s personality. Interpretation keeps on changing.
- Eriele: The characters are like so sweet to the point it gets annoying.
- Lionel: The protagonist sounds like the last YA Protagonist from another book.
- Jimbo: School, school, school and did I just say school?
- Sasa: They don’t like the writing style. The book started great and eventually the satisfaction drops.
- Hyacinth: The characters are always in pity party.
WHAT DO YOU THINK, GUYS?
