A Sure-Fire Read
I have started at least five books in the last week. Books I know I would usually like. But none of them have worked for me.
One problem I sometimes have is when the book begins by dropping me into the middle of a scene and I have to scramble to figure out who everyone is and what is going on. I like to ease into a book with one character to cling to--at least at first.
If the writing on a page looks too dense, I am also put off. I need paragraphs, dialogue, white space and a narrative mix. Am I fussy? Probably.
What is the most sure-fire book you might recommend for someone having trouble finding the right thing to read? What book can no one resist?
