Received ‘Edited Galley’ for ‘Review Only’ in mail – opened book – read until page 113 – closed book, threw up.

My regular readers know (I hope) that I normally do write such short and negative reviews. However, about this book, there can be no other review that I can write. When I read about the plane crash (on page 113) and found myself thinking, “It’s a shame he didn’t die in the plane crash, then I wouldn’t have to read this book.” I realized it was time to shut the book, give it 0 stars and go on with my life.

How I wrote this review is how the book is written, only he covers his life practically from birth on in such a fashion, all the trivial mundane events in his life. The words tedious and boring come to mind. I am afraid if I write more, then this review will become tedious and boring. I always try to be kind with my reviews, I certainly don’t want a reputation as a hater, here the kindness will be to the people who read my review, if you still want to read this book, read a good portion of it before you buy it. Please don’t waste your money.

For those unfamiliar with my rating systems ‘0 Stars: Blech, wanted to leave it in the subway, on the tracks’, I didn’t do this for two reasons, (1) that would be littering and (2) I buy expensive bookmarks and I didn’t want to lose one. However, if anyone is going camping and needs paper to start their campfire, I have about 140 sheets of 20lb stock you can use. Sans bookmark.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.

    The author of this book has a blog name of writerspleasure on Livejournal and hangs in a lot of online political groups there, many are shocked he’s “published.”
