Sorry, fantasy fanatics. I just can’t do it.
I try, but I don’t find fantasy enjoyable. I just finished Obernewtyn, and all I could think about was how awful and expository the prose was, and how frustrated I was about having to learn the rules of the world. I was literally in pain when I got to the end of the book. The best I could say for it was that “It’s full of imagination!”
…Which is great, and if that’s what you enjoy, that’s great. Power to you. I just can’t do it.
