He might have been a great author and an American legend but to me...he was not my favorite. In fact, I don't think I would be compelled to read another page by him.
His pages were too...descriptive. I know that sounds silly. But all things in moderation...right?
I like to get a setting, an image and then let my own imagination run wild. F. Scott was simply setting sail, he went overboard and took me with him.
I felt like I was drowning in all those words.
Maybe he was just meant for a different time...at least he was meant for a different reader...than me.
If he's your favorite...sorry. Not so much for me.
I think I'll stick with the King...Stephen :D
