“Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the reader – not the fact that it is raining, but the feeling of being rained upon.” — E.L. Doctorow
I remember my Dad buying me a book entitled Where The Rainbow Ends by Clifford Mills, and I was so engrossed, I read it in one sitting, finally turning out my bedroom light at 3am! It was around 1973/1974
There have been other books where I have been running with the hero to escape the bad guys, or feeling the pain of a character having lost a member of their family.
I don’t read as much as I used to and little on the shelves attract me to purchase.
However, there is one book I have read umpteen times (and wore off the gilt on the title cover) where a certain chapter always makes me feel the character’s stress and tensions ebb away when he sleeps in the same room, in the same bed, as he did as a child in his uncle’s home. Wonderful.
