1. Genre: It is a historical romance.
2. Reasons to throw it against the wall: I usually finish a book in one to two days, unless it is very heady - then I can give it at least a week. Well, after three weeks I am only half way through. I fall asleep reading. I get so bored that I day dream whilst reading. I get so frustrated with the characters, I throw it across the room. The main conflict was resolved by then end of Chapter 3. The Hero and Heroine Happily married each other and have a relationship so sweet, they make the "Waltons" look like serial killers. She head-hops so much I am forced to reread passages to figure out what the hell is going on. POV has even switched mid paragraph! And the worst crime is her "info dumps". I LOVE HISTORY, but when you give me 50 years worth in one character's two page dialog and expect me to believe this is casual conversation, it will not work for me. This is oft repeated offense in this book.
So, "Why," do you ask, "are you still reading it?". Good Question. Because this writer has published over thirty books. Because millions of her books are in print. Because I want to find out what she is doing right, what has made her so successful. Perhaps her readers have not read anyone else. I will let you know if something changes, for now I am headed back to doldrums between the covers.
