I love a story that balances pace with detail.
I've always been a mythology lover, and so I took a great deal of inspiration from the tales of various dark gods and popular versions of Hell from the Greeks and the Norse stories.
For me, a great story is one in which the protagonist faces unimaginable odds; where the stakes are high that failure constitutes a disaster.
As an actor I'm always interested in dialogue, the way the characters speak to each other. I also enjoy a bit of humor, especially when it's unexpected.
The only thing that makes me put down a book is if the characters are boring, or the situations aren't fraught with the potential for some great change or I don't mind if an author torments his protagonist, but I do expect a decent payoff in the end.
I love stories about artificial intelligence, and post-humanity, so I'm thinking along those lines.
