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.
Let’s see. Well, I’m not really a huge fan of alternating POVs. There are some exceptions, but generally they are not my favorite. One book in particular that used alternating POVs that I didn’t really care for was
Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
This book not only has alternating POVs, but one character’s chapters are first person, and the other character’s chapters are told in third person. I really didn’t like this, and it was kind of jarring jumping from one chapter that was written in first person to the next chapter in third person. Not a fan.
What do you guys think of these types of books?
