You may not like the book and feel free to say so, but please read the other reviews before giving them a yes or no votes, as most HAVE read this very long and time-consuming book and have taken the time to write what they thought. Maybe it would be more appropriate to use the new "comment" section by the voting icons to state your case, rather than heap negative votes on reviewers. Thanks for your considerarion of this topic. luansos

Maybe it would be a good idea to post comments rather than heaping negative votes on people. Keeping in mind that many people have read advance copies of this book. The problem is not with the reviews, all of which are good, whether I agree with them or not. Perhaps the problem is with the book itself; it is just not very good.

I notice that no negative or critical reviews have been posted for a few weeks now. Very strange, since you know there must be some people who did not like this novel or who at least have a more critical review then the raves they are currently posting. If anything, there is now a campaign to promote this author and this title to the disregard of any true literary or historical analysis.

They never posted my review, and I wrote it a month ago. It is obvious that they have stopped posting reviews that are three stars or less. So much for freedom of speech. The publishers are deciding what the American public will want to read. I know there must be other people who could hardly finish this book; it was so boring.
