Then you are using the term inaccurately.
a new plot, but, again, DRGIII's books are primarily about character introspection before plot. What this boils down to is that that doesn't work for you -- which is fine, but it does work very well for others. I was very happy with the levels of character introspection in this book; it's an aspect of the novel format that you can't get on TV.
I'm misusing the term the same way you're misusing the term 'plot' as it relates to introspection on previous events.
