breaking bad

Moving back to novels again

It seems that a medium or a genre will suit a person. And if it suits you, you are quite tolerant of the less-good bits of it. Anyone can like a few arias, but only an opera buff can tolerate the twiddly bits in between 'em. Perhaps for me the medium is cinema. I often enjoy a film more than I know it deserves, just because I like being there in the cinema audience. And I will read all kinds of SF, and I like it even when I have a suspicion it's trash.

What about you?
