"The Stand" is only the second book that I have ever thrown away. Normally if I don't like a book I just give it away.

But I tried reading "The Stand" 3 times over a year and a half. Just couldn't.

The only other book that I tossed was "A Confederacy of Dunces". Just trying to read a short summary (http://www.gradesaver.com/a-confeder...short-summary/) made me sick.

There's more than one book in the world because we all have different taste. And while I "know" that S. K. is supposed to be great, there is something in him that reminds me of "A Confederacy of Dunces".
I don't have a problem with you not liking The Stand but hwy are you "throwing" books away, instead of passing them on or donating them?
