I was reading a young adult novel this weekend where there was a curse word in every other sentence. The f-bomb, sh*t, h*ll--you name it, this book has it. In spades. No exaggeration. Like most YA, it was told in first-person so, pretty much from the first page, I got the obvious hint that the narrator was angry, frustrated, and even a little old and jaded for her years. So, mission accomplished. Go, you.
At first, I found the narrator quite annoying. By the third chapter, I had grown used to her and even felt a little sorry for her (which I'm guessing was the author's intent). By the fifth chapter, I was into the story so there's no turning back. I will finish it.
Do you appreciate a well-placed f-bomb (or a million of them)? Do you care? Does/should it matter? That's the million dollar question for the day.
