Quite possibly true!
I love me escapist fiction. Real life is unpleasant enough and I was never one to enjoy harlequin type tragedy/romance where a couple of words of communication could have solved the entire problem (reference to Romeo and Juliet).
Different strokes/different folks. I wish that in high school required reading there was more of a balance. If there MUST be Poe and Shakes, it would be nice to throw in some adventure fantasy, some great little whodunits and some fun!
