Christian fiction is not like other fiction. The writer has a message to convey. Even with funny Christian stories, the goal is not to make you laugh or feel entertained.
God can speak to you through these words. Especially the parables and allegories especially contain special messages that may need reflection to mine the message.
Christian writers who are committed to their craft recognize it as a special call to use their God-given talent for storytelling and writing to impact the lives of those who come in contact with their works. Read with an expectation to go home with something.
