The Downfall of the Novel

Perhaps partly to blame for the novel's downfall are the temptations of the Internet, such as blogging. The Web, she says, "produces some pretty depressing people who don't know anything about anything."

From the 17th March 2008 Wall Street Journal interview titled 'Provocateur' with Doris Lessing.

Or it produces depressed people who know too much about everything, but you still have to make up your own mind how much of it is believable! :)))
I enjoyed reading about your jungle hike. I think you were pretty brave.

Nah buddy. The downfall happens way before the advent of Internet. It is called television.
