Imaginative and humourous but ditch the Americanisms, 24 Aug. 2012
This is a work of some imagination and also manages to be intentionally and unintentionally funny. However, I kept getting distracted by the American phrases and colloquialisms. This story is set in Britain and the heroine is ostensibly Welsh. She and her fellow (non-American) characters' speech is peppered with American words like "gotten", "checking account" (bank account), "math" (maths), "bracers"(God knows. in this context I think it meant bracelets but the Oxford dictionary says it's "an alcoholic drink intended to prepare one for something difficult or unpleasant"?), "parking lot" (car park), "figure out"(work out), "meeting with" (meeting), "medical exam" (examination) and many more. This is just lazy editing. If you're going to set it Britain, change your editor.
