"Time passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but pass it does. Even for me."— Stephenie Meyer
It depends on the book and the issue. I like to read to escape. So, if the issue keeps me in touch with reality too much, I tend to zone out. Also, if the issue is too dominant and the story gets to the point where it's obvious the author is pushing their opinions on you.. well.. then I lose interest quick.
What about you? Do you like issue-driven books? Why, or why not?
