Yep. Inflated reviews turned me off SPAs pretty quickly. At first, I was thrilled beyond belief to see so many inexpensive, highly rated books. Until I read a couple.
I don't consider myself to be a picky or highbrow reader, but I want the correct words used. And spelled correctly. And for the prose to adhere to the accepted rules of grammar.
And that doesn't even begin to address the story. If I have to figure out which word(s) the author should have used, I can't even ~see~ the story, much less enjoy it. Words have meaning. Written words convey their meaning through spelling.
Famous Big Name Critically Acclaimed Literary Author can take all the liberties with grammar/spelling/word usage he/she sees fit - I may not like it - but I can accept there might be a reason for it, albeit one I can't see. Newbie SPA needs to show the world at large he/she has a solid grounding in the basics before blazing new trails.
