I’ve gotten a few book recommendations from people I hang out with online. Well, chatroom stalk really. Anyway! Exact definition doesn’t matter. Grabbed the free samples from Amazon ebooks and had a somewhat interesting experience. I didn’t actually look at the story descriptions or even get them from the people who recommended them. It was just a ‘I liked this’ and the title/author. So I read the sample of one of them and… I have no idea what the story is about. Got a good introduction to two characters, the places and situations they start in. No clue as to what the plot is going to be. Seems to be fantasy-novel type world but I have no clue if there is any magic or fantastical elements whatsoever. It is the most blind I’ve ever gone into a story/book. I don’t even know what the cover looks like. Which is actual information since I’m pretty good at deducing basic story feel from what gets put on the cover. I’m torn between at least reading the story blurb so I know the basic plot and if there is magic/fantastical stuff, or just getting the full thing and diving in for the sheer novelty of knowing nothing at all except what the text itself gives me.
