A not quite as good trilogy I will definitely finish


Decided to read an earlier work of an author I love.*  It’s not as nuanced, imaginative or original as the later stuff, but it’s an EARLIER WORK, people. It’s not supposed to be. I mean, it would be really sad if it had been all downhill from here.

So here’s why I’m going to finish it: I care what happens to the characters. One of the worst things I can imagine hearing as a writer is “Your writing is terrific, but who cares.”

*not going to tell you the name of either.

**Let’s be honest. I have heard it.
