I can already tell you that there is an economy of styling and language and the protagonist is well drawn and developing over time without the irritation of the author doing all the work and leaving me just reading words.True enough--as an author, I have always been exceptional about not doing all the work. (Some have said I don't do any at all, but that's a post for another time.) Will Chuck like the book at page 135 or 264 (the final page)? No time to wait for those judgments--when good reviews are to be had, I'm taking them.
It provides the additional opportunity to flog the novel--something other bloggers do relentlessly when they put out a book. True, those are generally related to politics, but this is no time for quibbling. You've heard it from a reliable source, so now you know what to do: go buy this well drawn novel.
It takes roughly 7-10 days from the time you order for it to arrive, so there's still plenty of time to order 37 copies and have done with all your holiday shopping. Or, you know, one. Whatever. Just don't delay--order your copy now, while supplies last!!!*
Just to further entice, I'll include an excerpt in the comments--I'll select a particularly fine example of me doing not doing all the work.
*Damn print-on-demand, robbing me of a legitimate sales hook.
