As a fellow self-published author, I know how hard it is to get reviewed. And I know how hard it is to hear the word "no" all the time (that is if you're even lucky enough to get a response). So I figured I'd start reviewing the books that all too often get rejected; the self-published, the erotica, the sci-fi, the memoirs, the poetry, anything and everything! If the genre is too much on the fringe, not classifiable, or even worse, too popular and not unique enough, I will read it and give it a review!
Everybody uses Fucking Stars!
I think that for special and different books we should use a special and different rating system! As you will soon find out, the rating system somewhat resembles my taste in books.
From good to bad respectively:
Biff-(LAMB: the gospel of Jesus Christ according to his childhood pal Biff.)- The best and most enjoyable because he has sex with a hooker so he can tell Jesus all about it!
Lady Chablis- (Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil)- A very colorful drag queen who is highly entertaining (in book and film version).
R.P. McMurphy- (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest)- the crazy "gamblin' fool" who turns the psych ward on its head, a bit nuts but still fun.
Ackley- (The Catcher in the Rye)- this is Holden's annoying roommate, but he's not completely unlikeable.
Bella Swan- (the Twilight Saga)- because I googled "most hated literary characters" and she was numero uno! *
And if you need it spelled out.
Biff= 5 stars
Lady Chablis= 4 stars
R.P. McMurphy= 3 stars
Ackley= 2 stars
Bella Swan= sucks
In all fairness to Twilight and its vampire suckiness, I have not read nor seen ANYTHING from this series. However that DOES NOT mean that If you get a Bella Swan, that I didn't read your submission. It just means I didn't like it. And classify it with those things that I am so disinterested in that I don't even bother with them.
