True or False?

“Well, here’s the thing. There’s a difference between reading critically (in the sense of reading with critical skills) and dissecting. Not all books–not even all good books–benefit from dissection. I know people have been disappointed that I haven’t followed up my epic Sayers posts with similar disquisitions on other authors, but the reason for that is that a book has to be doing a certain kind of work in order for dissection to have value. And mostly, books that respond to this treatment are books that are already in the canon and doing very well, thank you.” — Sarah Monette
