What if somebody wrote a book that didn’t say anything?It just asked questions… loads of questions.
What if those questions were all leading? Could that count as actually saying anything? Does this post so far leave you with any doubt of what I am trying to communicate? It is, after all, almost all questions.
Can I deny that I said anything? All I really did was ask a bunch of questions. Is it a problem if the questions all have self-evident answers?
What if somebody used the word “story” in virtually every other paragraph? Would you find that annoying?
What if somebody wrote with no concern for how much paper they used? What if there were random line breaks everywhere? After commas, After ellipses... Even for no reason whatsoever?
And then followed that with like 4 blank lines also for no reason whatsoever.
How long could I write like this before it became incredibly annoying? Would 194 pages of this be more than you can stomach?
Also, what if this book cost 11 dollars but took under 2 hours to read, even while making notes in almost every page? Would that affect your feelings toward the book?
If you enjoy this style of writing I recommend Love Wins by Rob Bell. If you find it silly or annoying or you just wonder if this is what they call "emerging grammar" then I say skip it.
Thus ends the snarky portion of my book review Read the next post if you want a serious review.
