I think one of the books I mentioned to you had inconsistent use of corsets. 😉 I had sort of picked up on it. Especially with self-published books, I’ve lowered my standards. Yes, the premise was scientifically unsound, but the story was pretty entertaining so I’m just gonna let it go.
Though I was a stickler for logic as a kid. Hated reading From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler for class because two kids get away with living in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and I was like there is no way in hell that could happen. Or The Westing Game where the building’s tenants need to solve a puzzle. I could not imagine any adult I knew willing to put up with such shenanigans lol!
It was that book! I otherwise enjoyed it, so it was a good rec. It’s hard for my editing brain to let those things go.
I don’t mind if it’s part of the worldbuilding premise, like “let’s start with this unlikely assumption and go from there” so long as they then stick to the world rules.
