I hope this issue gets more visibility and she writes more...good stuff!
Did I mention the italics?
Having not read the self published drivel carrying the name "Maid Not For You", I am basing my review on the material found on the website by the same name. On the basis of that reading alone, I can say definitively that even if the "book" were given away for free I would feel cheated and misled for even having spent my time on it. Putting aside the gratuitous use of profanity (which honestly does not bother me) the writing is completely atrocious. Ms. Bergman writes using spoken English rather than written English, presumably in some attempt to make her narrative more conversational. This technique might have succeeded have the text not been riddled with poor grammar, run-on sentences, misspelled and/or misused words and a complete lack of organizational structure. Anyone considering spending their hard-earned money on this drivel should read the website first so that they might make an informed decision.
Finally, I would encourage a savvy consumer to critically read the other reviews on Amazon. There appears to be a clear, dichotomous, split in the numerical scores given: one group of reviewers rated the "manuscript" quite high while the rest gave it as few stars as Amazon allows. There is no middle ground. When you take into account that the majority of the positive reviews are coming at the request of the author and/or written by friends of the author it should give the consumer pause.
It should also be noted that my review is completely content agnostic. The fact that Ms. Bergman appears to be a narcissistic, bitter creature with too much time on her hands to write long-winded, rambling diatribes about all manner of wrongs done to her, both real and imagined, doesn't factor into my utter disgust.
