The WORST load of rubbish I've Ever Bought
on 21 March 2013
OK, I'm fair with my reviews. I give lots of 5 stars. . . So when I can't think of a single good word to say about a book its very unusual. I'm at 32% on my kindle and I just CANNOT READ ON. I downloaded it because of the names of the authors involved, and I have to say I admire, respect and enjoy all their work. The authors should've put their own names to the stories so that we knew who to blame ! And the shame is that there might be some good stuff after the 32% marker, and I wont know because I cant be bothered to wade through the load of heaving bosom rubbish to get to it. So if anyone has found anything decent after 32% can they let me know, because at the moment I've wasted a fiver. If I could give this zero stars I would. And the annoying thing is that I didn't download a sample first because I looked at the names of the writers who contributed and thought it a done-deal that this would be a good read. Just goes to show. Anyway, if you're the type of person who buys a load of toot, and has a cupboard full of stuff you don't wear, then buy this book, it'll be cheaper than the rubbish you usually spend your money on. My advice to the authors who contributed is not to advertise this on their websites because to recommend it isn't fair to their readers. (That's how I came to find it), but I wont name the author, I respect her work too much to say anything bad about her. And as for the reviews by publications, what a joke. . . A book that has the literary world abuzz with excitement, causing a frisson of electricity to pass through the corridors of the country's publishing houses (Telegraph )WHO WROTE THAT. . . THE CLEANER, because if it was a professional reviewer then its time for their retirement. On a scale of pissed-off-ish-ness I'm at 10 out of 10, because I expect a publication like the Telegraph to know what they are talking about.
