Calling All Boy Readers

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?

Please click here to visit his blog and leave your answers there.
