The New York Times looked at adults who read YA. “The books are fast-paced and fun. “A lot of contemporary adult literature is characterized by a real distrust of plot,” Grossman said. “I think young adult fiction is one of the few areas of literature right now where storytelling really thrives.””
Amen to that! I just finished a great fast-paced YA, and am now half way through a wonderfully written adult novel that also seems to be completely aimless. It's like one long reverie.
