I wouldn't know. Was he speaking directly to you? Larry Send a noteboard - 14/04/2011 11:28:16 PM
Does he mean to say I'm an idiot for loving the book and thinking it well written and well developed?
I'm not sure any author good or bad have any right to write such a review to any book, because all it says: look how batter writer I'm!!! I hope for him he is...

That remind me, once, on my third year at the art academy, one of my teachers, reviewing, my works said: "I don't understand your decisions, your themes and your works" That all he said and gave me 75... He dismissed all my work without even trying to understand or enjoy it... Do I need to tell you that he is well known and well accomplished arties, who's works are pathetic in my eyes...

I sure that this response amused you to...


Considering that I'm under the weather, I'll have to take a raincheck on being amused ;)
