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?
The only thing that makes me truly dislike a book is no-win scenarios. If I have no hope that the situation will get any better for the protagonist and her people it really doesn't do it for me. I first discovered this with Life as We Know It. Even though the book was excellent technically I knew, logically, that what had happened was the end of life on this planet as we know it, and that no matter how long the protagonist held out things weren't going to get better. A lot of zombie books are like this, too, so I'm not too big on those. Otherwise I can tough out pretty much any issue in a book, even if I do throw it across the room repeatedly while I finish it.
