Apparently gotten is peculiarly American. (Do Canadians use it? Not sure.)
Some people say that it is an ugly sound. I, myself like it.
But more importantly, somebody said it 'pulls them out of the story.' If it shatters belief, I don't want that.
So what do you all think?
Should I not use it in fiction? Is it jarring? Does it shout 'US-ian here' when you want to forget there is an author at all, and to just believe?
