As good as its title

One can get good at vigorous effort of seeming to make good oratory sounds, movements of rise and denouement without having anything particularly compelling to another audience.
One can write tight, clear and creative, but on a topic of no interest. Every utterance is an invitation to broaden interests.
One can move one person to tears while the other blinks in confusion because it elicits shared experience, or doesn’t.
There can be shabby shoddy thinking in any form. Rhyme doesn’t mean it’s mostly filler. And refusal of the anaesthetic of narrative doesn’t mean deep side thoughts instead of provincial personal diaries.
Style factor doesn’t prove anything. But it can be an indicator. How often is the title or cover a fair warning of mismatch?
