In a memorable Friends episode, Joey and Rachel have traded their favorite books. Joey likes The Shining, but when he gets scared he puts the book in the freezer. Rachel has him reading Little Women. And Beth is really sick, and Joey is scared. So he and Rachel put the book in the freezer together.
JOEY: Beth is really, really sick.
JOEY: Jo's there, but I don't think there's anything she could do.
RACHEL: Do you want to put the book in the freezer?
Well. I’m currently reading The Marbury Lens and I am about 12 chapters into the book and have had to put it down on several occasions because it has been uncomfortable for me to read. I finally got to the point where I had to put it in the freezer. I know that this book has been well received and has had amazing reviews, yet there has been certain situations that I cannot picture anyone reading without being disturbed.
So here I am with this book on freezer lock down and I am perplexed on what to do next. I want to know if anyone else has had this issue with any book they have read and have issues with. Do you keep reading? or do you place it aside temporarily? or maybe come back to it another day?
What book made you uneasy and what did you do about it. My curious mind is seeking the answer. HELP!
