Just remember that if there are 10 reviews and only 1 copy of the book has been sold, it may look weird to him.

1.  There's about 50 free copies floating around out there.

2.  The person who was given this book is okay with being found out.

3.  You can read the review for the horror, and say that's what happened if you like.

4.  CRUSH HIM.  The ghost of F Scott Fitzgerald commands you!

"There are no reviews for this item"  :?
- So the New World Order does not actually exist?
- Oh it exists, and how!
Ask the slaves whose labour built the White House;
Ask the slaves of today tied down to sweatshops and brothels to escape hunger;
Ask most women, second class citizens, in a pervasive rape culture;
Ask the non-human creatures who inhabit the planet:
whales, bears, frogs, tuna, bees, slaughtered farm animals;
Ask the natives of the Americas and Australia on whose land
you live today, on whose graves your factories, farms and neighbourhoods stand;
ask any of them this, ask them if the New World Order is true;
they'll tell you plainly: the New World Order… is you!

It's weird.  I can see mine and Nivek's, but not Paynes (and he can't see mine).

Still, crush him like a bug.

I just posted:

Quote
By R L Beerstein
When I received a copy of this from a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend, I figured if someone was passing it down for that long, it must be good. Then I realized it was entirely the opposite. They were trying to get rid of it.

I tried to like it, I really did, but the center-aligned text and the use of copyrighted artwork inside of the book bothered me from the start. This is hardly the Epic of Gilgamesh and shouldn't be formatted to look poetic, it's really just a nightmare constructed by someone who's desire was to hastily write a book for a buck.

The story is unoriginal, and the writing style makes it difficult for me to follow.

Do us a favor, Darrin, take this off of Lulu and stop embarrassing yourself.

Holy fuckballs.

After giggling through the 5-page pronuciation list, I'm not sure I can make it past the first sentence:


"The sun begins to fall to the helpless thoughts of dusk where the sky turns dark and the night once again strengths the Necromancers."



There is so much wrong with that, I feel paralyzed.  Honestly, I can't even begin to comment on it.

I refused to read it after I saw the formatting.

Your keen eye for layout has saved you from horrible, horrible things.

you know whats weird?
I can see 4 reviews.
2 of them gave 1 star, 2 of them gave no rating.
At the top, it's got a two star rating.

How the fuck does that work?

One of the Euros gave him 3 stars, then explained WHY.

TGRR, I'm not sure if I can ever forgive you for this.
