Thank you for your comments.
I read like I eat. If I am in the mood for chocolate caramel and bite into a raspberry cream, I am not happy. I feel the same with a book. If I am in the mood to be immersed in a story of science fiction, mystery, or whatever, I am not happy if I have pages of filler thrown in that doesn't advance the plot.
It's free and I can always try his writing, now that I know what to expect.
