This will be the last time I bother yall for the rest of the year. I swear. But since I’ve been rushing around bragging like a fool when I received positive reviews, I thought I’d share my first negative review. This is from some guy on Amazon. Here it is:
“They say you can’t judge a book by it’s cover. In the case of Ad Age columnist Ken Wheaton’s, starter effort it is true. The First Annual Grand Prairie Rabbit Festival has a cover that is frame worthy. The pages within, however, might be most useful in the recycling bin or wrapping fish. That is how much I was disappointed by this unnecessarily convoluted and profanity-laced debut novel. Although the beautiful cover hints of a lovely small town saga I found the story of protagonist Catholic priest Steve Sibille to be forced. I am sure the author was aiming for a columnist’s penchant for irreverence but resulted, in my opinion, with a disrespectful nose-thumbing of Catholicism as well as an overbearing and failed attempt at humor and graceful wittiness.”
That’s his opinion and he’s entitled to it.
That said, if you have read the book and you are an Amazon reviewer, well, you know, get crackin’. (Note: That’s get crackin’, not get cracklins. Don’t want your high cholesterol to be my fault.)
Happy New Year.
