What highly recommended books did you read or start reading, but didn't like or couldn't get into? Doesn't mean they are bad books, just that they weren't for you.

I always give a book a good try before I give up on it completely or start skimming it.

Books I couldn't get into (again, I'm not saying they are not good books, you may love them):

Three Men in a Boat.

The Name of the Rose.

Les Miserables (I started skimming on this one. Parts of it I liked pretty well).

Go Set a Watchman (I read it all but didn't care for it).

Atlas Shrugged (Finished it but had to skim parts.)

Nine Dragons (By Michael Connelly, I liked the others in that series but couldn't finish this one.)

I'll think of others by and by.
