That's one of the great things about being an author, also. Even those who like the same types of books can have greatly disparate opinions on any particular book.
Today, I came across these two new review of The Great Lenore on Goodreads:
Review 1: (2 stars)
Just finished the Great Lenore. I'm not sure what made her great. Everyone was in love with her, she collected men like some collect stamps. A quick but flat read.
Review 2: (5 stars)
Let me tell you a funny story about what happened to me on my way to the grocery store…
It’s around 10am, and I’m walking out of my house to my car, and the mailman is just coming up my walkway with a box. I go back inside to open it, (because, hey, you know, I have a strict “no package left behind” policy), and much to my delight it’s my copy of The Great Lenore.
Well, I’ve been dying to get my hands on this book, so I figured I’d sit down for a couple of minutes and just read “a couple of chapters”. Whet my appetite a little….
“Somewhere a clock ticked. Somewhere, time disappeared.”
Well, when next I looked up (after finishing the book in its entirety), it’s 7:30 pm, and I guess I’d better start scrounging something for dinner, since I never made it to the grocery store.
If you read one book this year, Hell, in the next TEN years, read The Great Lenore. I’m going to find some food and write a proper review for this incredible novel.
Did I fly? Oh, yes I did JM.
