The bored reader

There are no rules out there, but there are sins and the cardinal sin is boredom. Robert McKee

The bored reader puts the book aside. Why? Possibly the writer grew enchanted with his powers of description and failed to keep the ball rolling. Characterisation, theme, mood; none of these stand for anything if the story is dull. Yet, if the story grabs you, all else can be forgiven.
