“Literature can be divided into two categories,” Matt said, “short and good, and long and bad.”
“What do you mean?” Jeff asked.
“Well, think about it. What are all the books people are forced to read and almost everyone hates?”
“War and Peace, Moby Dick, Don Quixote, the list goes on. And now, think about all the literature people liked reading; Things Fall Apart and The Giver for example. They are both pretty short and don’t try to do anything fancy. They just lay it out for you.”
“Uh, I guess so.”
“Exactly. Less words is more better.”
