:womancomputer: Hi Readers the last book you read in Contemporary does the author's use of language (diction and syntax) draw you in, or put you off?

Both. Over use of period language that I need to translate in my mind makes me a bit crazed. But well placed period words pull me into a book.

This is a difficult one because being english i learnt a lot of the older english and period language in english lit at school so its not a problem for me reading it so i think yes i think say i like the language to match the time period
