I enjoy mysteries by authors such as Mary Higgins Clark and Sue Grafton. In both Clark's and Grafton's novels, you just get caught up in the adventures, and it's easy to identify with the characters. I find it hard to read a story when I don't like the main characters. These are forgettable books on the whole. You remember what went on, you remember enjoying them, but you don't remember the titles.
