Have you ever read a book where someone's attempt at a local detail was wrong and threw you out of it? I was reading pic related and for the UK bits, the South African author had been busy name-dropping Eastenders and things, then there was a bit in a hospital and she said it had Laura Ashley couches. In any hospital I've been the seating just has to be waterproof. Laura Ashley would definitely look out of place, unless private hospitals are different or something.

Olaf Stapledon tries to imagine the history of humanity over the next two billion years but many reviews recommend you skip the first four chapters or so because of how laughably inaccurate his account of the near future is; the book was published in 1930.

France and Britain end up in a catastrophic war, with Germany seen as the main peacebroker of Europe. Nuclear power is discovered but it is then all the research is promptly destroyed so it can never be used as a weapon of war, so First Man ends up building a religion and rituals around coal powered aeroplanes until everything goes to shit when they run out of sources of energy.
