Pet Peeve re: Books.

I HATE when an author describes a character as looking like someone famous. For example, in Helen Fielding's "Olivia Joules...", a character is described as looking like Eminem. I think that is such a cheap and lazy thing to do.

On the other hand, if while a character is talking and they mention that so-and-so looks like a famous person, that's much better, IMO. "He's so hot...he looks like a young Antonio Banderas..." That's okay.

This random pet peeve was brought to you by hours and hours of reading stupid books.
