funny dude - jas Dog breath - W1LL My apologies man.  Lets fix these fools. - HAMMER77777 
Question Does anyone else hate books that drag on?

I've read a few books this year but a lot of authors these days tend to blab way too much, I've read this is a real issue for today's writers, excessively drawn out books that could have been explained in fewer pages. Before I get snobs criticizing me, yes many have criticized modern authors for this, just google "books too long these days".

Worst of all I always feel a nagging compunction to finish the book so once I start I can't stop!

I don't fuxx with books

Only book I read was Cat in the Hat and it was pretty good, solid read. 8/10 book. It didn't drag on either so I don't know what you're talking about.

Last book I read was Richard Pryor's autobiography and that was in 2006. Good read, I read it again in 2010.

I once read the unedited ultimate edition of Stephen king's the stand.. ****ing took forever and maybe one cool thing added.. the rest was a few hundred pages of boring descriptions about the land, road, etc

I'm currently reading "The Call of the Wild" and while it's not a long book, there are parts that are extremely irritating to get through. I know it's an old book but damn, the wording gives me headaches.

Yeah, it's worth reading IMO. I'm nearing the end of the book. Some parts are just hard to concentrate on due to the odd wording by the author.
