The author, however, often relied on narrative and telling to inform the reader about each of his characters. I noticed this most frequently in the beginning of the book. It is tempting to explain characters to the reader, but I found that the author’s voice interjected into the natural flow of the manuscript jarred me from the story like hitting a rock in the middle of a stream. By the end of the book, this telling tendency seemed to fade a bit and I was drawn into the story so that I did not notice it as much.
