1.0 out of 5 stars The best bit is the cover, 15 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Village Idiots Ebay Club: Daft People Buy Daft Things (A Humorous Swipe at Life Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Sorry, but this book sums up all the bad things about self-publishing. It's billed as 'laugh out loud' but for me it was painfully un-funny. I made it to the very end without a single smile, but that didn't take long because it's a very short book. One of the worst fashions of self-publishing is putting excerpts from your other work to pad the book out. This in itself is annoying, but when it takes up almost half the book as it does here, it's terrible.

There's no story - just a series of vignettes about the people you see on the cover. The spelling, grammar and formatting or very poor too.

I'm sorry - I'm sure Mr Bray had a lot of laughs while writing this book but sadly none of them transfer to the reader.
