Q: What is a deal breaker for you in a book? For example, do you abhor love triangles? Or can't deal with bad editing?
I don't have that many deal breakers but I do have some. I will normally try any book in any genre but if there is something about the premise I don't like or it doesn't get intersting at all then I won't like the book and I will either have to struggle through it or put it down. This is why I try and choose books I will know that I will like and are in genres I like. Other things that are deal breakers in a book is writing that I just plain don't understand. Sometimes this happens in classics, sometimes in books with weird language like Clockwork Orange. Sometimes it just won't be a book for me. If I don't understand the book and where it is going I will have to put it down.
Not much else is a deal breaker for me. I mean many annoying things like bad editing and spelling mistakes can be overlooked if the story is really good. I don't take books that seriously for me not to over look some mistakes but the stuff I mentioned above I can't look the other way with.
