* Pretty minor, but what about that construction team that accidentally started demolishing the wrong building? The audience knows it was likely something Karen wrote to get the plot moving again, but realistically, this grave mistake not only cost a ton of property damage, but could have gotten someone seriously hurt. And the guy just shrugs it off with an 'Oops!'. I think we're looking at a lawsuit here.

** Honestly speaking, if the death is due to the accident or, even more so, natural causes, the chance that a relative in a state of grief would act on such a finding rather than brush it off as a coincidence even if he/she gets to know about it is pretty dim (and it's unlikely that one person could ever learn that there was more than one such occurrence, if the characters are just plain people whose deaths were not reported in the media).

**** Might be seen as a case of ExactWords, actually. 'Cause she didn't write "He called someone". She wrote ''The phone rang''. And since it obviously couldn't have been Harold's phone, the typewriting machine assumed it was Karen's phone that had to ring...

** Who says she did? She thinks she might have, but it's equally likely that Harold's situation is just a one-off occurrence.

* If Karen really had killed all the other characters in her books, wouldn't the media have caught on at some point? After writing eight critically acclaimed novels that ended in the deaths of real people, surely someone related to one of the said characters would have contacted the police?
