B was for Biography
What did I learn from reading this biography?
- If a fictional story is written in a way that made it truly loveable, if the reader really wants to capture all of the story, could they be taught to appreciate peripheral characters? Could a large cast work if written in a natural familiar way?
- The fiction writer is trained not to overwhelm the reader with "too much". Does this lead us to underestimate a reader's capacity to store huge amounts of information? Surely, if they can follow a biography they could follow a cast of four characters without getting lost, right?
Get ready for "C" is for Classics. I'm starting the next book soon. I love this genre so it was a trick to find a book I haven't read before. I chose A Room with a View which I've never read before, but (from what I hear) probably should have.
Do you have a favorite classic novel? If so, tell me about it.
