I didn’t look up how often it was used in reference to actual pages… but when I first read it, all I could think was, goddamn, this bitch keeps saying ‘Oh.’
I did, however, search how many times it was used in each book on my iPad a while back. (I’ve been keeping a list of how often certain things were used.) I’m not sure if I reported my findings, but if I didn’t, here they are:
“Oh” was used… 484 times in the first book, 558 in the second and 588 times in the third.
That is a total of 1,630. Altogether (on my iPad) there are 2,517 pages total on this series. That is including title, table of contents, publishing information and all of the stupid non-story stuff no one cares about like, Acknowledgments and About the Author.
So we will just round to 2,500 pages, let’s just say. 1,630 times out of 2,500 pages? Hmm… as I’ve said, shitty writing is shitty.
Also, just for shits and giggles: The different variations of “Holy Shit/Hell/Mother Fuck/Cow/Crap/Moses” were used: 384 times.
Seriously, guys. This is a best seller. There is no reason to live anymore.
That gives me an idea though… if you guys have ideas for things that are repeated in this book ridiculous amounts of time (due to James and her shitty “writing” abilities) send a message. I’ll give keep a list and eventually make a post about it. Just a thought.
