I was thinking the other day that most of today's sci-fi/fantasy books are too long, and for that matter completely boring. There are only so many "boy/girl saves world from ruthless oppressor" storylines I can take!
Not only that, these books are becoming far too long. Space Odyssey 2001 and Planet of the Apes were brief stories, but the authors did an excellent job of keeping to the story, but still being descriptive.
It seems to me as though the new breed of sci-fi/fantasy is becoming drab, unimaginative, and long-winded.
How does anyone else here think/feel about this?
