Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop that is designed to provide some much-appreciated exposure to the bloggers participating, and to expand their following. Hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, each of whom feature a chosen blog for the week, it's an interesting way to get to know one another.
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.
A: Hmmm, good question and very tough one at that.... When I first started reading YA books in particular I absolutely hated different POVs, I didn't get it. Now I find that I prefer different POVs to omnipotent narrators.
At first Omnipotent Narrators really didn't bother me, and in all honesty until now I didn't even know what that phrase meant; shocking I know! But now as I'm exploring different sub-genres within YA I have grown to think its over-rated or like you say it's 'considered bad form.' as you get the impressions that the character know everything and anything and is 'on top of the world' so to speak. But saying that, you do get some brilliantly written omnipotent narrators.
I have thoroughly enjoyed exploring different POVs in YA and seem to be picking them up more now-a-days. For example the book I'm currently reading has a brilliant flow and structure with the POVs just absolutely brilliant! However, in some not many books you can get too many POVs it does irritate and ruins the book for me as its too many perspectives to consider and experience.
What is writing device irritates you? I'd love to know... Leave your blogs FF below and I will be sure to 'hop' on over...
