Shallow and pedantic, October 12, 2011
By Captain Munch (Oregon) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Doritos Tortilla Chips, Nacho Cheese, 11 Ounce (Grocery)
This is the worst book I've ever read. The plot is linear and predictable, the characters are flat, and the setting is badly researched. Apparently this is the author's first novel-length book. Hopefully it will be the last.

They are HEAVY!, January 3, 2013
By Bargain Hunter - See all my reviews
This review is from: Vinyl Dumbbells 10lb - Pair (Misc.)
Today I was sitting in my rocking chair at the porch when Pat the mailman arrived, and he gave me a very dirty look as he handed me my Amazon package. I soon found out the reason: this item is HEAVY! No really! It had to weigh at least 20 pounds! No wonder Pat was so grumpy.

I think Amazon should give you a warning or something, it is very irresponsible of them to sell such heavy things without telling you beforehand.

It's OK, but..., March 24, 2009
By Alice Wonders (Nevada) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Dremel 4000 Rotary Tool (Tools & Home Improvement)
I received this Dremel brand rotary tool today. It works really well. Only giving it 4 stars because the box it came in was a bit scuffed in a corner.

UPDATE 1-12-2013: Reduced to 1 star because it broke down after only four years of continuous use grinding granite and titanium alloys. You'd think Dremel would make better tools.

The author didn't research the subject, April 2, 2013
By Natalie Blood (New Jersey) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Dracula by Bram Stoker (Hardcover)
Almost as soon as you pick up the book you know that it's going to be bad. The characters spend the whole book writing letters to each other and there's no action to speak of.

There are lots of anachronisms. For example, it is set in the 1800s but Mina types her letters and Dr. Steward records his voice. Hello! Everybody knows that there were no computers in the 1800s! Can you be more stupider than that?

Also, the book gets everything wrong about vampires. I think the author should have done some reading on the subject before writing the book.
