I said that I’m only about 35% in so far and that I like it… for the most part. One of the problems I have is that there aren’t many likeable characters. I think I’ve complained about this on the blog before but I can’t seem to find the post to prove it. I certainly don’t think all characters should be shiny and perfect, but I usually want someone to root for.
This led to a quick discussion about what other qualities we don’t like about books in general. Another one I know I’ve brought up before is chapters that are too long. Such a small complaint, but I like a natural stopping point. My mom really disliked when there wasn’t enough dialogue. What are your reading turn-offs?
And yes, if you are my friend and ever mention reading in my presence our conversation will likely make it onto the blog.
