This week Bookmark Chronicles wants to know:
Have you ever started a series and not finished it? If so, why?
I have to admit that I have done this a couple of times, the most well known series that I have still yet to finish is probably The Chronicles of Narina (Wikipedia). I have read the first three books of the series, but I have yet to even pick up any of the others. I believe there are 7 total in the series?
Its just never happened. When the movies came out I was really hoping that they would make all of the books into movies, but it didn’t happen, probably not going to ever happen. I think if all of the movies had been made, I would have read that particular book before the movie came out. I just never went through the whole series. I can’t even say that the books I haven’t read bore me or anything, because they are beautifully written. I have just never read them.
I think it was also had to do with once the characters we had been introduced to in the beginning were dropping off and leaving. It’s kind of like watching a tv series and then once the original characters are not in it anymore, you lose interest. Its one of the reasons I stopped watching Greys Anatomy. It freaked me out recently watching Cold Case, also for example, from the beginning, since I had never seen it before from the pilot. They had all these different actors right at the beginning, the difference in the atmosphere and connection between the actors, just put me off.
