I am finding this book to be very boring actually. I like sci fi movies, but not books, and he seems to take many pages to describe one brief situation. I would enjoy is more had it not been sci fi and if it's pace went quicker.

Hi John, it certainly isn't traditional sci-fi. It seems to me it's more of a "what if" God gave humanoid life another chance on another planet to get it right "in the beginning."
Oh, I understand, I just think that he takes up a lot of time to say very little. As a writer, I have been taught to do just the opposite; to say a lot in a little amount of time. Some people write a whole baseball season on to one page and other people write a single baseball game into a 500 page book.
Oh, well, if you're talking quality of writing, that's a whole 'nother discussion. As a copy editor, I can slice a 20-paragraph story into 40 words or less if I have to. Can't imagine "To Kill a Mockingbird" as anything less than what it is, or anything more, either. I've been learning how to read and unpack CS Lewis over the last couple of years. Takes some getting used to.
