    At least I can't read any more. Perhaps a lack of attention, but books, especially novels talk too much. I need my entertainment to "get to the point" and that seems to be something that "good writing" actively avoids. They want to "paint you a picture" spending paragraphs describing a desert for example.

That's one reason I like sword and sorcery. As you say - it gets to the point. The sword-point, so to speak. The authors know and respect their audience, most of whom are fans of things like comic books, video games, action films, and tabletop RPGs.
