Now, don’t get me wrong: the descriptions...

They made me read a romance. It was tough. I picked a skinny one hoping it would lessen the pain. It didn’t.

Now I know why I’ve never been much of a romance reader—pedestrian writing at best, undeveloped characters that I never grew to care about and a plot that was more recitations of events than compelling. A tough slog, indeed!
