As a reader, it’s inevitable that we come across a book we choose to DNF. We may not have liked a particular turn in the story, or we may have chosen the right book at the wrong time. Either way, at the end we’re faced with the question: do I rate this unfinished read?
There’s a reason you DNF’d the book, and this should impact the overall rating. For example, you stopped reading because the writing was poor and the plot made little sense.
B) YES as long as you explain in detail the reason you DNF’d.
You believe your negative experience with the book should impact the book’s overall rating, but that other readers should also understand what exactly made you put down the book. If you can’t give textual reasons why you DNF’d the book (ex: it was more of a mood reason) then you won’t rate at all.
Since you DNF’d the book, you don’t know how it ended. Maybe whatever irritated you was explained later. To be fair, you either keep DNFs entirely to yourself or only post a review without the rating.
