Ah, I see.  I think the proper translation in the U.S. would be "ripped off"--feeling like you exchanged money for something that wasn't worth it.

But still, he probably meant that in a figurative sense, not literally.  I'm guessing he didn't like the way the book ended and so felt cheated for having put the time in.  I have that reaction to books and movies sometimes, and it's just my personal reaction--I wanted a different ending, darn it, so I feel cheated.  But that's not a statement of value of the product; other people will probably like the ending.  

I know it's easier said than done, but...Shrug it off!
