1) 2D Villains - I want to know why they are evil and need to be defeated, not just be told they do and be expected to accept it.
2) Whiny and Dense Heroes/Heroines - I can't get behind them if all they do is complain and repeatedly ask for clarification on things they've already been told.
3) POV Issues - If POV jumps and it is done clearly and neatly then I have no problem with it. But I hate constant POV jumps that leave you unable to work out whose head you're in.
4) Major Text Issues - The odd typo I can forgive. I do some editing work myself and know that no one can be expected to spot everything, some little thing will always be missed. But I find it hard to read a book when every page contains errors.
