One anthology I was interested in reading received a one-star review because the reader put down the book halfway through. It seems she couldn’t follow the plot. Someone commented on the review, telling her that it was an anthology of eight stories, and not just one big book.
Another one-star review of a sexy romance book said, simply, “Trashy, trashy, trashy.” Sad to say, that’s what made me buy it. Heehee!
My favorite was the person who rated a free book with one star because it was too short. They had poured a cup of coffee, sat down to read, but finished reading the book before they finished their coffee. I love that rating system.
Speaking of rating systems, a woman rated a friend’s erotic romance two-star because she was too old to read that kind of sexy stuff. She said if she’d been ten years younger, she would have given it five! That’s so cute.
Whatever you feel about a book; love, hate, disappointment, be sure to leave a review of it. It may help another reader find a great author, or may help people steer clear of marginal works. As authors, we love to see your feedback, and appreciate your taking the time to comment on our work.
Now it’s your turn. What are some of the wildest reviews you’ve read or written?
Have a lovely day!Laura
