    Default I kept thinking about Volume 2

    ... when I read this.

    Among other things.
    Alan Moore, I'm not looking at you because you're creepy, but you get the idea!

    Not saying that it's a 100% fit for either, or any of the other things I thought about (GRR Martin? Who?)... but...

    Thou shalt murder suspense.
    Um...I respect your right to your opinion, but Vol 2 had PLENTY of suspense!

    My problem with volume 2 is that the suspense was primary and the characters were secondary. The characters could have been anyone and didn't need to be Alpha to tell the story. If you look at vol 4, it's character driven like the early part of Vol 1 and Furmans tenure. Volume 2 never had that to my mind.

    Driftwood: Well, I got about a foot and a half. Now, it says, uh, "The party of the second part shall be known in this contract as the party of the second part."
    Fiorello: Well, I don't know about that...
    Driftwood: Now what's the matter?
    Fiorello: I no like-a the second party, either.
    Driftwood: Well, you should've come to the first party. We didn't get home 'til around four in the morning... I was blind for three days!

    Like I said, not a 100% fit.
    There were other things that v2 did that took it off that list, too.
    But plenty of things that fit...

    (Characterisation, as Del pointed it out.)

    I'd say he wrote them, but he's not that good.

    You are a stupid seal with a small rooster. Translate that into french and you'll get it.
