I had a very nice review on character development and how excellent it was, but unfortunately they were clearly talking about a different book
That's pretty far off! You have to wonder what the background is for a review like that. Maybe they read the book but were distracted as they wrote the review? Or maybe there was a significant delay between reading your book and writing the review, and they got it mixed up with another book?Martitalbott said:I wrote a book about an earthquake in Seattle, and the reviewer said it was a very good depiction of the Chicago fire.
Maybe they were saying it was too predictable? I have no idea. That is truly boggling.Alex Owens said:These are too funny. I got dinged with a 1 star because "the book was exactly what you'd think it would be from the cover and blurb"
I'm still trying to wrap my head around that one.
That is brilliant.Scott Bartlett said:I got this review as a comment on a humorous short story I posted on my blog:
"The fact that this won anything except the ire of your contemporaries baffles and infuriates me."
My immediate reaction was to crack up. I thought it was over-the-top awesome.
Tim, that reminded me of one I had for one of my ebooks:timstevens said:'The product arrived on time and the packaging was intact.'
This, for an ebook. Still, he gave me five stars, so I can't complain.
