2.0 out of 5 stars Tiresome, 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Rosie Project: Don Tillman 1 (Don Tillman Series) (Kindle Edition)
I really didn't enjoy this book. I bought it based on the reviews it was getting.. and I'm baffled to be honest. It was well written but the main character is like a robot (not like an aspie) I kept reading, thinking it would get better. And it didn't. Would not recommend.

So glad I am not the only one. I am about halfway and really cannot be bothered as I am finding it tiresome to use your word, a little patronising and protracted. Think I will stop and try something else.

"An aspie"???
What kind of disrespectful word is that?!

Bronwyn, we are being trained to believe (i.e. rely on) a huge number of positive reviews, even though they are usually by people with absolutely no training in reviewing, or by journalists well-paid to hype a book.

F.Martin,if you've read the book you'll know that it's a word a group of Schoolchildren use to describe themselves in the book,as does their Teacher so it's relevant to the book.
George,you're absolutely right.I have no training in reviewing but I put reviews up here.What I write is my opinion and I find the "system" flawed in that people tend to judge any review on their personal opinion of the book being reviewed rather than the quality,or otherwise,of the review.
I have seen books here with 5 star reviews very obviously either written by the same person or "inspired" by someone,somewhere as to the wording.The 3 star reviews tend to give a more balanced view.
