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.
I don't like dream sequences. I know dreams have importance in our psychological lives and they reveal a lot about what goes on in our heads, but I never liked them in books. They are always boring. I usually find myself skipping those parts. To me, most plot lines work perfectly fine without adding dream sequences, so it just feels like add-on material.
