Maggie: What did you think of the book you started last week?
Kurt: Oh, I liked it well enough.
Maggie: Wow, that’s a glowing recommendation.
Kurt: Well, it started off with a bang and the suspense in the first half was great. I couldn’t put it down. Then, the pace changed in the second half and it was an effort to finish it.
Maggie: Really? I read it a few months ago and I loved it. I thought the characterization was really good. I could really relate to the two main characters.
Kurt: Yeah, that’s true enough, but the plot dragged, don’t you think? The author just couldn’t pull it off and the ending was laughable.
Maggie: I really liked the ending! I can’t wait for the sequel.
Kurt: Well, that makes one of us.
