    Yes, though it is not a natural sentence. "I don't like your family" implies all the family.

    Could one use:
    2-I dont like the whole book.
    to mean:
    I didn't like any part of the book.

    It could imply that there are parts you did like

    Could one use:
    3-I don't like all of that book.
    to mean:
    I didn't like any part of that book.

    No - it implies there are bits you like. " I didn't like any of that book
    "
    ..
