If the invisible writer was truely a good idea, then how come it only takes a paragraph to tell if I'm reading Jane Austen vs. Ernest Hemingway, Lovecraft vs. Twain, Prost vs. anybody? I like a good, strong voice in my books, especially if that voice reflects the characters. When I think of voiceless writers, I think of Dan Brown, Stephanie Meyer, or other best sellers who are very focused on the story. Obviously you can make a living as a writer either way. And yes, I like "Princess Dairies," "Princess Bride," and "Don Quixote", all of which as books would run into trouble without a good comic voice.
