If you can’t say anything good … maybe you should be a book reviewer

Or if not a book reviewer, at least post your thoughts on Amazon. An agent found some examples of negative reviews for famous books. My favorite was:

“I bought these books to have something nice to read to my grandkids. I had to stop, however, because the books are nothing more than advertisements for “Turkish Delight,” a candy popular in the U.K. The whole point of buying books for my grandkids was to give them a break from advertising, and here (throughout) are ads for this “Turkish Delight”! How much money is this Mr. Lewis getting from the Cadbury’s chocolate company anyway? This man must be laughing to the bank.”
