Re: What makes a good book to you?
Solid writing. I can't get through a Dan Brown novel, but put one of Patrick O'Brian's books in my hands I'll read it cover to cover without a thought. The difference I think between these two writers in particular is that one of them did the homework to make all the details believable and one does not. One knew his characters like his own family and one just makes it up as he goes along.
