I need some help, I’ve been thinking about this for a few days and I can’t come up with the right word or phrase.
What is it called when an author uses dialogue to progress the story and make a point and then the omniscient narrator explains that point/progression again?
Repetitive? Annoying? Artificially stretching the length of a book? Ridiculous? Irritating?
Is there a phrase for this? Help me out?
Would I recommend it? Well, according to the back of the book she’s sold 590 million novels… but I’m not buying them. I’m not trying to be all “I only read high class literature” or anything here. I read plenty of fluffy, crap, books and thoroughly enjoy them. It’s just that while I was reading this I was afraid it was making me dumber, then I sat down to write about it and find that it may have actually broken my brain somewhat. Personally I’d trade this in for one of Janet Evanovich’s romances, they are funnier, better, yet still mindless feel good fluff.
Are you a Danielle Steel fan? Did I pick the wrong book? Why do you love them? Help me understand!
As a positive I now know how to make a Ô. Hopefully learning about circumflex accents helps make up for any other brain damage that may have occurred!
