I've read the first twenty or thirty pages several times, but I've never finished it.
Why didn't you continue from where you left off the previous time instead?
There are many books I've never finished, but the ones that come to mind right now are The End of Mr. Y
by Scarlett Thomas, and Tehanu
by Ursula Le Guin. The former because I just put it down one day and never felt like picking it up again, and the latter because it felt too sad, although I do intend to finish it one day. I'm also ashamed to admit that I'm still on the introduction to Gödel, Escher, Bach
despite having had the book since last September - it's not that I have stopped reading it, it's just that I struggle to make a decent chunk of free time to actually concentrate on it, so I'd rather read something a little more pulpy in the spaces I do get.
