What to do when the book you are reading has it's merits, some good ideas and dialogue but as a whole does not work for you. Do you plough on in the hope that it will all at some point come together, if so how long do you give it? Do you abandon it, tossing it aside without further thought? Is the problem the book or is it you? Having passed the point of 40 time has become precious and I am less inclined to waste my time on something that does not work for me. A true indicator is the time it has taken me to reach page 197 - 7 days!
