30 Day Book Challenge – Least favourite plot device employed by way too many books you actually enjoyed otherwise

Day 22- Wordy Title but I get it  and the least favourite plot device is….

Waking up in another person’s body or going forward/back in age in your own body.

You know those stories where the protagonist goes to sleep and dreams he or she is 40, (if they are young), or 16 years old, again, if they are middle aged. When they awake, they realize it is real. They are inhabiting another body.

Stupid, inane, detestable plot device that insults our intelligence. Waste of resources, space and our time.

I will admit to them having a small modicum of entertainment value, and note that they seem to have been used in more American films than I could count. So clearly, some people enjoy this kind of rubbish.

Do you?

Something to Ponder About.

  1. I avoid those kind of books. Pointless really as there is nothing to gain from the plot, other than being a gimmick. That said my daughter and I had a giggle watching one of these movies last week. So frothy – like a female version of Big. I cringed over the 80’s big hair and clothes, she laughed over them and it was a pleasant way to spend the evening together watching a totally forgettable film. 😀
