Follow Friday

Happy Friday! Hope you all have a good weekend. This week's question is, " 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.

I have several good answers for that one! 1. I cannot stand books with small print. It's just too hard to read! 2. I don't like huge amounts of detail. Moderate amounts are great, but page after page of detail just makes the book,well, boring! 3. I really like first-person narrators. It makes the book easier to enjoy, and I can really get to know the narrator better.

    (It took me way too many tries to get through the CAPTCHA. Perhaps disabling it is an option?)

  2. Hopping through. I agree. There's a fine balance between not enough and too much detail.

  3. I prefer first person, both to read and to write, but I'm not all that fussed. :)

    Small print also gives me the illusion of a book being longer, even if there's less pages...

  5. First person narrative is a tricky one for me because it often doesn't really work. It is easier to write though. I quite like small print because I often read long books and that way the book isn't too heavy! I'm a new follower, thanks for sharing! Hop on over if you have the time:

  6. Small print is a good point too.

  7. I agree. Though I don't just dislike small print overly large print is annoying too.
