Should novels generally be six hundred pages? No, they should not. Half of writing, maybe three-fourths of writing, is editing. This seems to be a thing that has not gotten through to them. It’s my impression that you could get rid of half of most of these books. These people are not good enough to be this long, but they’re apparently also not good enough to be shorter.
