Hullabaloo in the guava orchard - the worst story ever written,
This review is from: Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard (Paperback)
The book Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard - if it is possible to refer to this as a book (something that I believe should be read for pleasure) rather than a piece of condensed, and regurgetated managery of English literature lessons - is the least pleasent piece of writing that can be found on the shelves today. It is not simply an unenthusiastic attempt at capturing an audience without an exam board's efforts to trap once-enthusiastic English classes, but also a complete failure to write any real life dialogue. If one wanted to see a completely over-efficious father who seems to care very little about anything that does not come from above the ice, one would go to the yearly panto, not read a book that would probably make most people who are afraid of any literary text whatsoever, think of Shakespeare as a auick-read. If you want my, and any other ordinary person's advice - DO NOT READ THIS BOOK!!!!!

People who criticise anything with such venom should first learn to spell or at least check through their written rant for mistakes before posting it. Also, don't use capitals, it makes one seem to be shouting in an aggressive and somewhat fascist manner. The use of five exclamation marks can be interpreted as a manic reaction too. Everyone is of course entitled to their own opinion. I enjoyed reading this book very much, it was light-hearted and funny. I also know how to spell "pleasant", "regurgitated" and "quick", although the latter mistake may have been a typing mistake, easily done especially when writing in a period of mania. Please read this or any other book before making a judgement is my advice, and if you do find it to be a literary turkey just put it down to experience and use it as a contrast to books you have enjoyed reading, thus enabling a more balanced perspective.
