No, no, I get your point. It's horribly reductive to say that people do X because of Y. Generally speaking people do certain things for a multitude of reasons and reductive takes like that are serious overgeneralization. This particular case really doesn't work for me because it's rare for me to complete books I don't enjoy. I'll read plenty of books that aren't particularly good but I'll generally at least get something out of them. Why is this so rare? There are plenty of good untranslated novels out there. And a lot of the more famous ones were written years ago so finding finished ones should be easy. Translating a book is a ton of work so wouldn't it make sense to make sure it's going to be good first before picking it up?
