OK, this is hard. My friend is writing a book, and she wants me to read it and critique it. The problem is that her genre really doen't really interest me at all, (dark fantasy stuff) and I don't think that her writing is that good. Maybe it's just that I don't like the style, I dunno. So she keeps emailing me the chapters and saying she dying to know what I think. But I really think that reading this is a waste of my time. Am I being mean? So far I just haven't replied to the emails, but that seems rude. This is a tough situation, any help or input would be appreciated.
