I have read some excerpts of the book but to tell the truth I am not interested in reading it whole.

I have read some excerpts of the book but to tell the truth I am not interested in reading the whole of it.

Are both sentences grammatically OK and synonymous? Namely I have in mind the use of the word "whole".

I would use:

I am not interested in reading the whole thing.

especially in a negative context. Another option might be:

I am not interested in reading all of it.

in this case it is implied that you might read part of it.

There are probably others. I would not use your wording in context.
