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 really hate insta-love. Sometimes, if it’s written correctly, it is bearable but if a book does contain insta-love then I might not be as keen on it.
I also really dislike it when people use sentences like this: He/she was amazing.
To me, it doesn’t make much sense and it doesn’t flow well.
What irritates you?

I’m not a big fan of insta-love. You can feel attracted to a person when you first meet but declaring your undying love after five minutes is taking it a bit-lot far.

Looks like our thoughts on insta0love are similar!

Can’t say that I have come across anything with insta-love either, not recently at any rate, but I can certainly see how it would be irritating. It would take all of the fun right out of the story.

Huh. Wow. Have you actually read “He/she was amazing.” in a published book? That…oh dear.

Ohh insta-love is the number one answer! I HATE it. I don’t know of any books where it works.
