Have you ever read a book so well written that you felt transported to another world?
For me, that is the goal I set for every book I read. It MUST take me away; it must pull me into its world. I want to be a character in the book. I want to be one of the women sitting at the bar, listening to the conversation between the main characters. I want to be at the coffee shop, or the restaurant they frequent or in the church pew behind them. I want to feel as if I’m part of the story.
If I don’t…if the book doesn’t reach that goal…then for me, it’s a dud.
What do you think???
