I Quit!

I am very very close to giving up on Jane Lindskold's 'The Thirteen Orphans'. I'm over 150 pages in and nothing has happened! Way too much talking and backstory and not enough interaction. There have been two one-page physical confrontations and even they have been dull.

I'm not one to give up on books easily; I'm pretty stubborn about finishing a novel, especially if I can't return the book and get my money back. I can't remember the last book I had to give up.

Which books did you give up on? Why did you and have you ever thought about going back to give it a second shot?
