Is this a joke?,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Yearly Harvest: A True Story of Christmas (Paperback)
I read an average of 4-6 books a week (long daily commute, no kids, don't own a t.v.) and every now and again, I get a taste for a horror story. Someone here on Amazon posted a list of their favorite horror books, listing this book and several medical thrillers by author Clem. I ordered the book.
WHAT TRASH! It was barely readable, it meandered, it lacked sense and congency in large areas, the writing was on par with junior high school, the characters had about as much life and believability as match sticks and there was absolutely nothing scary, interesting, spooky, inventive, creepy or even attention holding about the plot. I hate to throw books away, even contentless rags like this one, so I dumped it in the local library's "free" box after placing a post on it that said, "utter crap-read at the risk of wasting your time."

4-6 books a week and yet most of your reviews of fiction (just a couple that I saw) are bashing "indie books"? Right. And for the record, when I was in Junior High I was writing on the level of a Senior in High School. It's fine if you don't like my work, but let's not go too far, eh?
