Writer or Narrator at fault? I suspect both

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who doesn't care whether "vehemently" is pronounced "venemently" in several places or that a "good" piece of writing is to say "she squashed her eyes" as a better choice for "squinted."

Has The Writer's Guide to Deep POV: Create Realistic Characters, Settings, and Dialogue turned you off from other books in this genre?

No because I know there are excellent books on writing out there.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Besides sounding like an 18 year old, her mispronunciation of words is sad. In a case where the author clearly meant "the engine revved," she said "revived." Clearly no editing took place.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Dismay that this was supposed to teach me to write well!

Any additional comments?

The idea of writing to deep point of view is great and the author does make some decent points. But choosing better examples (not from "young adult paranormal romance," for example) and a narrator who can actually read would have helped.
