I'm reading a science fiction book in which the author is more interested in the world than the plot. He keeps layering on interlocking details about the world, and the plot just sits there.

That works for me because I share his interest and disinterest.

Maybe I could live like that. Let the news plots and local-to-me plots go, and get amazed at the world right here, giving thanks on the planet of science fact.
