How fast does it take you to read a book and does it depend on how entertaining it is?

So I have a new James Patterson book and I can't seem to read it. It was not what I was expecting because I'm used to his detective series with Alex Cross or Michael Bennet, and this one has to do with elite super-humans and just not my cup of tea. I hate not to read it b/c I ordered it, but I just can't seem to get in the mood to read it and can only read a few pages at a time before I'm bored. Do others have this issue?

I attempted to read Crime and Punishment before school started, and it's still not done. I could use the excuse that I'm too busy but I really just hate the damned book because it makes me so depressed.

I try to read every single book that I buy, but sometimes, the books are just dreadful. In those cases, I can't see forcing myself to read something that I'm not enjoying -- after all, life is short, and there are so many great reads out there.

I know how you feel in reverse. I can't read his Alex Cross stuff, but Maximum Ride holds my interest (At least, the first three books did.) It depends on how long the book is and how much I like it. (And if there's anything going on that pulls me away from reading.) It can be anywhere from a few hours to the better part of a year.
