I've been thinking about the point in a story that makes you decide that you love it, or not. Sometimes it might happen on the 1st page, while other times it might be on the 400th, and no matter how many other little things happen during the tale, you can look to that one scene - The Event - that makes or breaks the story for you. I'm reading Incarceron by Catherine Fisher, and I just the read a sentence that made me love the book. Just one sentence. Isn't it amazing that only a few words can have that effect. I think so, and even though I don't know how the story ends, I will love the book no matter what because of The Event.
