— feeling bad smell
Outlaw (Rebel Stars Book 1) - Edward W. Robertson

I pushed myself to keep going several times but have finally given up. At times it was very well written and interesting but eventually I could not get by the bad descriptions that periodically cropped up:


"...motors whirred and clunked."

" orchestra of clicks, whirrs and beeps..."

" A high-pitched boop..." Is 'boop' even a word?


Is there no better description for engines than 'whirrs"? This is used regularly and I can't get by it...
