Hey everyone!!! :)
It's time for Follow Friday number twenty-four!!!
Let's take a look at this week's question:
Question: What writing device or trick most irritates you when reading a book? For example, if an author employs an omnipotent narrator that is sometimes considered bad form.
Answer: Switching between POV's in some novels bothers me. Like, it's kind of hard to explain why this bothers me, because in some books I really like it ... I think it depends on the book (like, what it's about). Like sometimes, when I'm reading, I really enjoy the POV of one character, and I want to keep reading the book from their POV ... and maybe read the other character's POV afterwards as like a different book, as opposed to switching back and forth. But it really does depend on the book, what it's about, and how well it's executed. So yeah....
Also, I'm a really, REALLY big fan of dialogue, so books that have pages, and pages, and pages, and pages, (and pages) of just pure exposition start to get....not boring but, I can feel myself losing focus and dosing off. I know that sounds really horrible, and it definitely doesn't happen with all books I read with a lot of exposition (like, this makes sense in diary-formatted books, and I really like that). But there are some books where I wish I just got to the action a little sooner if that makes sense, because the narrator's point already came across pages ago. So yeah, it's not that I dislike exposition, it's just that some books could use a little more action and/or dialogue and less exposition---but that's just my personal opinion and my personal taste.
I don't know .... hopefully my answer makes sense.... :/
Well, that's all for this Friday folks!!!
Midterms are over and it's finally FALL BREAK for me!
Until next time!!!
