1.0 out of 5 stars this was a horrible book, March 25, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
this was one of the most boring books I have ever read. DO NOT READ THIS BOOK! It may be considered a classic of literature, but i prefer a book with a plot. I can't believe that some people actually liked this spineless piece of junk that some call a book. The book was somewhat well written, but the story lacked EVERYTHING. Who cares whether Mark Twain wrote the book or whether Aohohfe Lkahfhagauy wrote the book? IT STUNK!

Im not sure it bodes well for a reviewer to speak ill of a book that you dont understand or cant read.
Maybe review something a little easier. See spot run is also a classic.

The book has a clearly discernible plot. Perhaps Twain's dense language means that readers need to work a little harder to observe the plot. Twain likely chose to write that way on purpose, so it is also important to keep in mind as readers, "Why would the author choose to write this way? What did he want readers to get out of the novel by presenting the plot among so many other details?"

I completely understand your frustration with this reviewer, however I don't think it helps any mission of literacy to resort to personal attacks. Of course, I should not assume, either, that your mission is to increase the world's literacy... You could just need to vent frustration about other readers.
