Q: 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.
There are a few that really really irk me. When I'm reading a paranormal romance I'm not a fan of the whole instant falling in love thing, that bothers me beyond belief. Another issue I have is when an author switches from a first person narrative to third person in the middle of the darn book. I know it doesn't happen that often, but when it does it is very irritating.
I have a lot more little things that bother me but this could go on forever.
