I also have moments where I read something exquisite and think I should quit because I can't write like that! But I keep trying.

In this particular book the writing is good. I just really don't like omniscient POV. I should have checked before I downloaded it, I guess.

I think this author is using it well. I just don't care for the style. I like being in one character's POV for a good long time and then switching when it's necessary, but not hopping back and forth, and not without it being clearly marked that we're changing.

I need to do that more. I purchased this one on Audible so didn't think of that. Thanks.

Yes! I feel both far away and too close simultaneously. I keep thinking, "I shouldn't know this!"

Does anybody else read bestsellers and go "Meh"? I'm reading another one and I'm interested enough to finish it, but I really dislike omniscient POV. Am I alone in this?

Do you mean AC vent? Yeah I’d have a hard time visualizing that unless it was a car that had rear vents (like a minivan).

I hear you. I think that’s one reason I enjoy writing. My characters can be less socially awkward than me!

Swearing doesn’t bother me if it’s in character and not overdone or gratuitous. I’m thinking more of stilted dialogue—yes, like the author is trying to sound cool, or just so awkward I feel embarrassed for the characters having to say it.

It’s really hard to vote because I dislike them all. But I’ll skip details I don’t want to read. I can ignore a few grammar mistakes—only a few or I’m out. But cringey dialogue just can’t be ignored.

BTS? Big turtle socks? Boiling toadstool sauce? Burping toddler smiles? Baby tyrannosaurus snoozes? Blithering trump sycophants? *googles* Ah. A boy band. Sorry. I’m old.

Oops. I read that as title instead of book. But I like it so I’m leaving it.

I hear you. Writing isn’t my career so I don’t need to make a living from it. I just want to get my book read and not lose my shirt in the process.
