Block is one of the easiest writers to read that you’ll ever have the good fortune to come across. He doesn’t seem to write prose so much as invite you to listen to him (or Matt Scudder) talk.

And while admittedly you can’t talk back, you don’t mind because Matt’s voice is so calm, rational and entertaining that you wouldn’t want to interrupt the flow anyway.
