Have YOU ever been offended by something in a book?

Not really.

I do struggle to read historical fiction, because I hate the way people were treated back then.... I mean, I read it, I just hate seeing the N word used loosely in books that are set in pre-civil war times.

I'd have to say probably so, but off-hand I can't think of any examples.

I agree with this. Not offended personally but the use of the N word bothers me. I skip over it when reading Mark Twain books which are some of my fav.

I dislike the N word in Mark Twain also. I wouldn't say I was offended, but it's unpleasant and we're not used to hearing it in modern society.

plan4fate hit it on the head exactly. Just language that is considered extremely inappropriate now.

Even if I found something in a book, which I would find offensive should I meet it in my daily life, I wouldn't be offended. If you are going to read I think you have to recognize that a book is an art form and authors use "offensive" material for specific and useful purposes.

Bad writing? ... Seriously. LOL. I got about halfway through this one book, and it had started off so good, but the writing just kind of fell apart. I felt compelled to finish it because you simply *don't* start a book and NOT finish it... but after I was done with it, I was so mad that I had wasted my time on what ended up being a horrible book.

Other than that - no.
