I just finished Nick Cutter’s horror novel, Little Heaven. It was amazing. Expected this to be dropped fairly early into reading, but it slapped me and caught my utmost attention instead.
Safe to say this is a book I’ll always remember, but this isn’t a book review. One thing made me rate this lower than what I wanted to rate it from beginning to end, the long explanations.
Now, i’m one to always ask for explanations no matter how long it is. If it interests me, I need it explained. When reading this book, how descriptive it was had me excited. Until the near ending, I had no problem with that.
By time I got about 2 parts, not chapters, but parts from the ending, I couldn’t stand it anymore. It felt like it was in the way of a better progression. Sometimes you don’t need to explain, just sum it up.
My question is, would you rather read a book with more explaining or short and sweet? Does it depend on anything?
