Detective qualities

Most people I know enjoy some sort of mystery stories. My mother-in-law loved police and courtroom procedurals. My mother likes detective fiction. There are also murder mysteries, general mysteries, and hard-boiled detective stories, with protagonists such as Sherlock Holmes, Sam Spade, Amelia Peabody, Kinsey Millhone, Mamur Zapt, and Perry Mason to name a few.

  1. Do you enjoy reading mysteries?
  2. What’s your favorite kind of mystery?
  3. Do you like plenty of blood and guts, or do you prefer the details to be left to the reader’s imagination?
  4. Do you prefer mystery stories based in the author’s time or in previous centuries?
  5. Do you prefer mysteries based in your own country, or in distant lands?
  6. Do you like to figure out the solution, or do you allow yourself to be carried away with the story?
