Booking through Sensual

btt button

Which do you prefer? Lurid, fruity prose, awash in imagery and sensuous textures and colors? Or straight-forward, clean, simple prose?

It depends. If I am reading poetry, I prefer imagery and all. Like a painting. The textures and colours have to come alive for me. But if I am reading, say, crime fiction, I like to-the-point writing. It helps me concentrate. However, I can read any kind of writing. It depends on the genre, really. A good book is what I desire.

I agree - it just depends. There needs to be a good balance.

I also like to the point texts. I have no qualms about skipping ahead. My post is here.

I like tight, plot driven narratives. I don't want lots of fluff that robs me of the delight of conjuring up mental images myself.
