It’s very rare that I don’t finish a book I intend to read, but occasionally it happens. The only book I can remember trying to read for leisure that I didn’t finish was The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. It was way too boring for my tastes. I also think it had a rather predictable ending, even though I never finished it. A film was made in 2009 with Mark Wahlberg and directed by Peter Jackson, but I haven’t seen it.
