A graduate student who goes by delzey is conducting informal research for a lecture he's giving in January. He needs feedback from male readers between the ages of 8 and 19 years old. Here are the main questions he's posing:

What plots or types of stories are you tired of seeing in fiction? Any good examples?

What's the most recent book that made you want to close a book within the first three pages? Why?

Have you ever read a book that felt "fake," like the author was trying too hard to achieve something but failed? What was the book, and did you finish it anyway?
