    5. I can tell you two things that bug me right off: 1) It's written in present tense (not a fan, not saying that makes the book bad, but I just have a hard time focusing on books written in present tense) and 2) It's dialogue isn't natural. The opening chapters just don't have a smooth continuous flow.Two pet peeves of mine in one sentence: "What the heck does that mean?" Jake says angrily.1) We know how much I detest adverbs modifying a dialogue tag.2) Jake ASKS he doesn't say. When someone is ask [...]
