Amusing Brandon idiosyncrasies/typos

7 posts in this topic

I finally got off my butt and got past chapter 1 this week (AoN has been sitting in my files for three years; I started four times over that time and never even got to D'Naa's first POV). I'm glad I did, though, because I'm greatly enjoying this story.

THAT SAID...whoo boy, definitely an early, unpolished work. Some of my favorite recurring things:

1) "Hoard" instead of "horde"

2) "Aid" instead of "aide"

3) Great (awkward) use of "maladroit"

4) "Distinctified" instead of "distinguished"

4) But my very favorite: recurring use of "monopolized" where he meant "capitalized"

Any other common typos stand out?

If so, none have evidently stood out for me such that I'd remember them offhand.

But keep an eye out because at one point in the book there will be something that isn't there which stands out as a typo... presumably. xD

Chapter 28, I assume? Lol

Yeah, I got to 29 and I had to flip back and make sure I wasn't crazy. I wonder what that's all about...

“Darro had betrayed his most beloved of bothers” amused me. 

Pour was used instead of pore several times.
