Customer Review

1.0 out of 5 stars Sorry, cannot possibly continue., 24 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Joe Carpenter and the Soul Of The Lost Artifact :Mystery & Adventure: (Kindle Edition)
This book may well have the best story in the world to tell, but unfortunately I cannot bring myself to continue beyond chapter 4; believe me when I say I have tried to persevere. Having read hundreds of books , I have to place this one at the top of the list for the worst abuse of the English language I have had the misfortune to encounter - no idea how to properly construct a sentence and, inappropriate and absent punctuation, If the author at all - and I suspect he didn't - employed the services of a proof-reader/ copy-editor, then I would advise they didn't do their job.
It is a shame because I thought there was potentially a good story.

Thank you for your review on this novel, book sponge "Hazel"
It seems you didn't soak this one up too well...?
Please give your definition of "abuse" of the English language, as this novel holds not one swear word within its pages.... of which holds over 85,000 words.

Many thanks
Mike Greaves

Well, Mike, you're quite right - couldn't absorb it at all I'm afraid which as said is a shame because it looked like it was going to be something I could really get into as others have reviewed and enjoyed it. Please note I did not comment that your work was 'abusive' at all; my comment's meaning was on your actual use of words within the English Language being more akin to an 'abuse' of the use of those words only.
