Erika, you say you don't "f-ing care" about the story, however you have unwittingly told on yourself. Using such strong language and writing such a long, scathing review - shows that it struck a nerve somewhere, even subconsciously. You even "liked" a quote from the book on your profile - whether you admit it or not - it piqued your interest....

Hi Maria. No, it didn't get my interest,
that's why i didn't finish it.
I always try to finish the books i start and when i don't it's because I REALLY find no motivation to keep reading. The only ones i haven't finished are this and
The War of the Worlds
, that's saying something, it's not like i always leave books unfinished.
I wrote the review because i like to write what i think about books. There are only 4 or 5 books in my shelves that don't have a review because i haven't sit down to write them.
And whenever i find a quote i like in a book, i like to "like" it on goodreads too. Yeah, i liked that one, so what? I don't think that because i like a quote that means i like the book or it piqued my interest, otherwise i would've finished it, don't you think?
