As a reader, do you have a "pet peeve"? I have a problem reading books told in the first person. When I read a book, I immerse myself in it and "become" the character. In first person, I can't do it. I feel like I'm in a conversation with the character. Unable to truly connect, I start to lose interest fast. There isn't enough time in the day, so when I do decide to sit down to read, if the book doesn't grab me within the first few pages I usually put it aside. But what if you just shelled out close to $30 for a new hard cover book (If I had an e-reader, it would have only cost me $13.)? I'm hesitant to put this book down forever strictly because of the cost. The husband tells me to give it time. The one thing that I don't have enough of is time.
How do you feel about the "I" voice? Do you like it? Am I the only freak out there?
