When someone tells me a work of fiction is an interesting book, I know there and then I am NEVER going to read that book.

Works of fiction are not meant to be interesting, they're meant to be entertaining.

History books are interesting, novels are not. Atlas Shrugged was ultimately pointless.

I think it is ok if they are interesting, though I do not tend to be much into fiction. Really, is it not better to ask what good it does for Atlas to be shrugged? I would think things could get a bit tipsy.
