You don't think? Part of the reason that I dislike a lot of Morrison's work (although I love some of it) is that it often feels shallow and self-congratulatory, and the characters kind of... impoverished when it comes to any spark of humanity.
Morrison-characters mostly feel like paper dolls to me, and I think it's because he treats them that way. They all speak with the same dull, wooden voice, except that some of them are varnished with hilariously bad dialects or accents.
