Character Names That Confuse

Just finished reading a very good German crime novel, In Free Fall, by Juli Zeh. Fascinating book. Fascinating characters. Interesting to see that she makes a mistake lots of writers make, and one that has become a pet peeve of mine… character names that you can’t tell apart.

The guy also did it in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, btw.

Here are some names from In Free Fall… yikes!

Sebastian
Rita Skura
Schilf
Schnurpfiel
Schluter
and
Sandstrom

I swear!

Now, you’d never do that in a script you wrote, would you? Naaaaah.
