Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just finished the first Mere Anarchy story, Things Fall Apart. Although I thought it was pretty good overall, I did not care for the authors' style of delivering dialog. It seemed to me that they'd have one character deliver a line, then they'd add several (or more) lines of descriptive text having to do with what was said; maybe how the character felt, or how it related to something in the past - then the authors have the other character deliver a line or two, before delving into another bit of descriptive text. It made for difficult and disjointed conversations - not smooth and engaging discussions that keep the readers' (mine anyway) interest.
