An Excellent Story Written Very Badly
on July 11, 2013
Steve Berry has established a very comfortable niche for himself in the world of repeating heroes. Cotton Malone is a real person with real problems in a real world. And Berry's obvious erudition in support of his history-based story lines is enjoyable to behold.
For some reason.
Berry has started writing
As if giving five words.
Their own paragraph.
Somehow adds emphasis.
And. He. Also. Does. This. Thing.
Which is so over.
He is being lazy. Emphasis and importance come from words, not paragraphs.
C'mon, Steve! You're way too good for this! Get a new editor--one who might God forbid challenge you--and start writing as well as you tell a story.
