And People Wonder Why I Don't Read My Reviews...

Behold the first masterpiece of Amazon customer criticism. Then go ahead and order the book she feels so strongly about, WILDWOOD by Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis. Maybe from your favorite indie bookshop?

People suck.

Hmm, well at the time of this comment the review has a "1 of 53 people found the following review helpful" rating. So over 50 people disagreed with or found that post to be worthless while only one agreed.

There's plenty more to be said, but personally I think that says enough.

Actually, I would like to add: There's always a productive and positive way of doing things or a negative and destructive way to do things.

Such as with your art, I think. You can create art with horrendous zombies or you can create art with cute angels.

Maybe this person does feel very strongly about Wildwood, but what will negativity and destructive behavior accomplish? ( think suggestions and advice would be more constructive.

Wow. I'm afraid to say that I don't get very far into that. I did enjoy all the comments saying "thanks to your review, I will definitely be buying this book!"

Wow. That lady is government education at it's best. An anarchist is anti-government not anti-society. Her brainwashed mind can't imagine a world without government.

It's sad to admit she probably represents a large majority of "Christians". As a Christian myself, I do not share her views.

Actually, what's funny is the comments on the review where it enticed people to buy the book.

I deal with these kinds of people all the time on the phone. They're long winded and ruin my talk time stats.

I wonder if she realizes how many books she is selling? We granola munching hippies love to read. :)

I can't wait to read this book. The art is gorgeous and Colin can tell an awesome story.

I'm amazed at the response to the review. Folks aren't suggesting that it isn't Anti-Christian/Anti-God. They merely say that they like that kind of book.
