I absolutely hate it when I read something and can tell that certain characters were just there to die. It makes their existence and deaths have almost no significance and it makes the author look lazy.I also can't stand it when people are dying left and right. I can understand it if it is a violent novel but it gets old and the dying looses it's "effect"
I don't believe that the main good characters have to die either. Sometimes I'll be reading and a character randomly does and I am like, "wait what?" You know what I mean; when a character dies and there was no real reason for them to? I can't stand that.
