And now enjoy a special BONUS! A few butthurt gun nut reviews:
Yeah, you know how us liberals LOVE to ban books!
“anti-gun nuts”…LMAO! Also, this person mentioned sexual jokes, transgender people, penises AND panties all in that short review! Paging Dr. Freud…
I honestly can’t tell if this is serious or the BEST liberal troll of them all!
Of course, all of this attention has driven sales of this abysmally written book way up, but that’s a small price to pay for the entertainment provided by the reviews. I invite you to read more. You won’t be sorry.
Yes, I said that this is abysmally written. Typos are rife throughout the book, homophones appear at the strangest times and the narrative (it’s an act of generosity to call it that), well…. it’s just bad. And, as one reviewer pointed out, the parents’ names are laughably “symbolic”: Bea Strong and Richard “Dick” Strong. You don’t have to be Fellini to figure that out.
As Truman Capote once said, “This isn’t writing, it’s typing.” Mr. Capote would have a field day this dissecting this pathetic excuse of a book. But I’m sure he would genuinely appreciate some of the the reviews.
