The initial description contains huge spoilers for the whole story. After looking at this wiki page hoping to gain a little bit more info on the book I was met with the basic retelling of the plot line from start to finish, twists included, in the description. Ruined the book for me. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 19:59, 16 February 2013 (UTC)
| The first paragraph should define the topic with a neutral point of view, but without being overly specific
There is too much information in the lead section; users who want a complete plot synopsis can read the section marked plot summary. Also, take the example of the Rendezvous with Rama opening paragraph - it does not include a full synopsis. Psychlohexane (talk) 06:56, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
I don't agree, and the example you give is neither a GA nor a peer reviewed article. Our best articles on works of fiction have complete synopses in the lead. Viriditas (talk) 05:30, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
