Lone Star Anthology
1. Time magazine published one of those periodical "best novels" lists.

2. Matthew Baldwin of The Morning News lovingly picked an anthology1 of the best putdowns and pans of said novels from the one-star reviews they got on Amazon.

Good clean afternoon fun.

1 anthology, from Greek anthos, flower. I love that image.

Current Mood: rushed
Current Music: Rona Keinan -- Tiyul Bahir

The warning about The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe is particularly incisive.

I hope not all of these quotes from Amazon are supposed to show that the Amazon critic is a moron. It may not be very interesting to say that a certain literary classic is a bore or a piece of crap, but it's legitimate.

The moronic ones are pretty good, though. I loved the frustrated Potter fan grappling with aesthetic relativism.
