I’m a curious person. Always have been and hope I always will be. Big things, little things, things of importance, inconsequential things…you get the picture. As a blogger I’m curious about how people respond so differently to storylines, writing styles, characters, etc., and I’m hoping you’ll indulge my curiosity from time to time on different bookish topics…
This first topic came about because of a book I read last week. Some people revel in high angst throughout a book. I’m guessing they like that rush of adrenaline that spikes through your body when the drama turns high. This book had it constantly. Drama, great sex, breakup, great sex, argument, great sex…repeat on an endless loop.
So, what I’m just curious about is this? Do you have a cutoff point for the angst level? Does there come a time for you when enough is enough and you just give up caring whether the couple in a book stay together or not? If so do you flounce on the book or feel like you have to stay til the bitter end?
Me? My tolerance is way above what it once was. I understand that there needs to be some sort of conflict to keep things interesting, to make me really get behind a couple being and staying together. BUT, when a couple is arguing and breaking up over and over again, especially over the same issues then I begin to think that they’re not made for each other, never will be and quite honestly I wish they’d just go their separate ways. Thankfully, I don’t run into too many of those. So, give me some angst, don’t hit me over the head with it, and don’t drag it out too long. That’s what I’m talking about 😉
Alright…hit me with your thoughts now.
