I really, really want to reach into the book and strangle her. Oh my gods.
Yes, this is indeed irrational hatred. I'm not sorry. If anything I beg the excuse of early conditioning and if that comes up stupid, the fact that I was reading and fangirling Holmes at least a year before this monstrosity was published.
So. *evil grin* To take my mind off it, share with me some of *your* literary horror stories! What characters affronted you personally? What awful excuse for a plot had you flinging the book across the room with every other chapter? Extra points for obvious fanfic-made-book. Misery loves company, people. So spill. :)
