So what's the big deal about "Literary genre stories?" I've read a bunch of them, and they all seem to carry a boring tone throughout. Perhaps it's just me. Maybe I'm just shallow with my knowledge of a good read...but then again, I've read a bunch of good stories. What are some of the things I should be looking for in a "great" piece of literature that has an overall boring-as-hell story line? (i.e., seemingly everything in the "Literary Genre").
