Tension in Books

My best friend has her Master’s Degree in Creative Writing.  Let me tell you, that’s a lot of class hours spent on how to write!  And according to her, every single professor she had talked at length about the importance of “tension” in a story.  She said they all emphasized the importance of something in the story to “make the reader want to turn the page.”  SO, here’s my question (and one she can’t remember ever discussing in school) – is there such a thing as TOO much tension?

There are some books you can’t wait to tell the world about… there are others you don’t want to admit you read… and for each one in either of these categories there hundreds more that fall somewhere in between.
