Just the contrary.
Mrinal Bose

I have read “The Old Man and the Sea” and “The Metamorphosis”. I found them both entertaining, in their own way.

I have also read Marcel Proust’s “In Search of Lost Time” (all 7 volumes), Joyce’s “Ulysses” and some of Dostoevsky’s work. All of which I found – in their own way – quite entertaining. Otherwise why would I read a novel but not to be entertained?

True, it’s not the same entertainment one gets reading a Discworld novel, a novel by Matthew Reilly or Chuck Palahniuk novel, but it is entertainment nonetheless.

For me, a good novel cannot be called such if it isn’t – on some level, in some fashion – entertaining.

Thank you reading Mrinal, and thank you for taking the time to respond.
