Challenge Link-Up Post: Abandoned Classic

Please link your reviews for your Abandoned Classic here. This is only for the Abandoned Classic category. Pick a classic book that you started that never finished -- it could be something you didn't like or just didn't have time to finish. 

If you do not have a blog, or somewhere public on the internet where you post book reviews, please write your mini-review/thoughts in the comments section.  If you like, you can include the name of your blog and/or the title of the book in your link, like this: "Karen K. @ Books and Chocolate (The Brothers Karamazov)." 


  1. Hard to believe the abandoned classic was the first one I was able to complete. So glad I gave Dickens another go because I loved A Tale of Two Cities and will definitely be reading more of his work soon!

  2. I started this as a teen. I don't remember why I abandoned it. Glad to have completed it now. My review of: Riders of the Purple Sage

  3. I've posted my review of Cranford for this category.

  4. I can't imagine why I abandoned reading this book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it through this time. It's very funny while very pointed. Thank you Karen for giving me a reason to try again.

    1. I'm glad you liked it! The Warden is a little dry but it really sets up the action for Barchester Towers, which is sooo good -- I hope you read more Trollope!

  5. I had started reading 1984, then ended up putting it aside when we moved. I had never gotten back to it, so this was a great opportunity to finish the book. Plus it is great to have read a book that is required reading at my school.
