Build me a world I can believe in

From highbrow to lowbrow, great classics to zombies, all my favorite novels have one thing in common: a good story. I don’t care if the author is a literary genius or an amateur who can barely spell — if they can tell a really good story and tell it well, I’m in.

Fiction doesn’t need to be hyper-realistic, and it doesn’t matter if a novel’s story or plot lines stretch credibility so long as it succeeds in suspending my disbelief, transporting me into a different world.
