Finding the Flavor

When someone asked me what I thought of the last book I read, I said right away, "It had flavor."

Maybe she thought I ate it.

I explained it had to do with the story and the writing evoking a feeling. The characters were true to, not just themselves, but the setting and the time. The atmosphere was right.

Yes, I could've said the story was realistic, well researched, the author used the proper syntax, and made use of all the senses...

But I like the single word flavor.

And just like some books can leave a bad taste in your mouth, this one tasted just fine.

It had flavor.
