The Night Strangers
I am struggling through this book. And I do mean struggling. Bohjalian is a best selling author. He knows how to put words together and describe, describe, describe. But as far as creating characters I care about. Nada. They are boring and not real. The plot moves at a turtle's pace. Give me some snappy dialogue. Give me something to entertain me. Give me something besides rehashed plot points that have already been established. I want to finish this book because it was a gift. I'll keep plugging away. For now.

Here goes . . .
I write novels. I've written screenplays, short stories, newsletters, business communications and articles. I'm not great at thank you notes. My sister is, but she doesn't know it. I'm not much for blogging. Don't have something to say worth reading everyday. But this is a blog and we'll see what turns up.
