I give up. Maybe someday, when I'm retired and have long hours to contemplate and ponder and let the atmosphere build but right now I just don't have time or patience for a book that takes 120 pages to tell me what a character was wearing. Okay I exaggerate, but not by much. So, maybe someday, when I'm on a cruise to Alaska, or stuck in bed recuperating from surgery. Or maybe not. Maybe I'll just read eight or nine other books.
