The problem of "um..."
Valeria Valeria Jun 17, 2012 05:01AM
I don't know if I'm being overly irritable here but did anyone get annoyed by the amount of times the characters say "um..."

I felt like very single conversation, thought and sentence began with "um" It bothered the crap out of me. Why do they do that, what's wrong with using proper English ? I know um is good way to show uncertainty or confusion but Weatherly over did it to the point where I'd cringe when I saw "um" being used.

What does everyone think ?



As long as the book is good, who cares?


Hahaha, shows how much attention i pay. I didnt even notice, nor care.


I was irritated too. And I kind of find the book quite sappy and cheesy. No offence. But there should have been more actions. Too much lagging. ><


I think it's just naturalistic. So many people can't say something without saying erm, um, or well first.


I did! I mean, couldnt she think of anything else to write/! ur it was frustrateing!


author's voice. Makes it different good, not different bad. My opinion only.


I did notice there was alot of that, but then i find myself doing that alot when i speak, so i liked it cos it made it seem more realistic dialogue.
