Who Exactly Is Being Stung Here?

Remarking today on author Alex Dryden’s new thriller, Moscow Sting (the sequel to 2009’s Red to Black), January Magazine critic Gretchen Echols writes: “The potential in these pages for an engrossing tale was considerable, but the results are less than satisfying. I think I finally understand what is meant by a ‘plot-driven story,’ and it’s not a pretty picture--or rather, not a rewarding read.” Ouch!

Oh, Infinite Jest is great, provided you don't make yourself read all 150 pgs. of end-notes.

Also, I officially have no respect for the Huffington Post when they write things like "Not even Oprah could make Faulkner cool."

Yeah. No further comment.
