Subject: RE: BS: Do small errors in books, film &c matter
I guess I'll always remember the German crime novel ('Krimi') that made mention of the salt water of Lake Michigan.
I enjoy the books of Chicago Catholic priest/novelist Andrew Greeley....BUT he has very poor proofreading and a few deus ex machina plot resolutions that really bother me. Also, he has a nasty habit of mentioning electronic equipment by brand name, almost as if he had been paid product placement fees. I really don't care what brand of computer the heroine uses....
