  1. I've been going to post this for ages and then read an article on the Guardian website and it would seem I'm not alone in regretting reading a book. The author was mentioned in this article so I thought that I'd create the topic and see what other people thought (here is the article for reference purposes : 'I can't even look at the cover': the most disturbing books Mine is Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. It hit far too close to home for me and was desperately sad. I had to finish reading it because it was a school text (I'm wondering why now) but I'll never ever go back to it. I have read other Steinbeck work and he is a superb writer, which was never in any doubt at the time. I couldn't even watch the film. Other faint regrets are : Red Dragon and Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris, something else I won't be revisiting. Although to be fair I did enjoy them at the time and I did enjoy the movies but looking back, hmmm. I do like to be challenged by my reading but clearly there are limits. Then again, I'd rather regret reading a book than regret not reading a book and I'm not slow at putting a book down if I'm not happy with it so I don't see that happening again. Anybody else regret reading a book/books?
