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.
This is probably a throwback from my fan fiction days but the thing that most annoys me when I come across it is....Mary Sues (and Gary Stues). You know those over idealized heroines or heroes that can do basically anything, knows everything, is so perfect that every other character is either in awe of or in love with him/her and are obviously the author living out his/her every dream. Whenever I come across one, I am tempted to shred the book page by page. I see this mostly in paranormal romance and YA.
