The first classic I bailed on this year and it's for a pet peeve of mine that I just couldn't overlook. I could get behind the characters and the plot, but the writing itself frustrated me to no end. Literally every time someone spoke, they said the listener's name, even if no one else was in the room. If I could edit those names out of the dialogues somehow, I would go back and finish the book. As it is, I can't take it.
