Which do you prefer? Lurid, fruity prose, awash in imagery and sensuous textures and colors? Or straight-forward, clean, simple prose?
Actually both. Some novels are better written and read in one form than the other. It depends on the message the writer is trying to convey to the reader. I am one who, if asked to choose, prefers well written novels with long prose. I am not certain what exactly "fruity prose" would encompass as I imagine everyone will have differing opinions of this terminology. I do enjoy words, and when an author, through prose can make me feel with all my senses as though I am in the novel, for me that is bliss. What are your thoughts on the topic?
