Question of the Week: What writing device or trick most irritates you when you read a book? For example, when an author employs an omnipotent narrator that is sometimes considered bad form.
A: I typically dislike alternating POVs. Especially if each are written differently, like in Of Poseidon by Anna Banks, where the one main character was narrated in first person, but the other had third person narration. It was disorienting to read and I think that after reading so many books where the device was used badly, it's just become a pet peeve for me if it's there. I don't think I've ever set down a book only because of alternating POVs, but I've come close.
