One star reviews....

My absolute favourite one-star review was for Stormlord's Exile (the last book in a trilogy) at the Barnes and Noble page. Here it is, in its entirety:

What a wastes

Only worth reading because you bought the first two in the trilogy.

And my absolute un-favourite review? The turkey who also gave the book a one-star review, without comment, long before it was published, or indeed before the ARCS (preview copies) were even available. In other words, they can't possibly have read it, or even seen it. I suspect it must have been someone who was pissed off by a blog post of mine, or something similar.

What an idiot would be my response to that.

Well, it's succinct. I'll give them that...

The turkey should be reported. Pretty sure that would be against Amazons policies.

The turkey was on Barnes & Noble too. Not worth bothering about...I'm pretty sure than anyone who has read the first two books already knows whether they will read the last or not! :)

I'm pretty sure anyone who has read the first two books had the third on order and was chewing their fingers to the bone while they waited.

You are so right Helen

I take it the first reviewer liked the first two books, or else s/he is a masochist who enjoyed the pain of reading the first two so much that s/he couldn't help buying the third!
