Blogging Challege - Book Throwing

Day 4 (Skipped Day 3) - What's the last book you threw across the room?

Jessica by Bryce Courtenay

One of my all time favorite books is The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay, and about 25% of the way through Jessica I though I was going to add it to my faves list.  Then it just got frustrating, and more frustrating, and finally I felt like the characters were all behaving out of character to force the plot to go where Bryce wanted it to go.  Fair enough, it's his book, but to me it felt contrived and at the halfway point I threw it across the room never to pick it up again.  I'll admit I still want to know how it ends, but I just couldn't get there.
