L. C. (Devilofabird) reviewed The Five People You Meet in Hell : An Unauthorized Parody on
Helpful Score: 2
Are there negative stars? Let me start by saying I didn't read the book this is supposed to parody; however, I believe books should be able to stand on their own unless they are part of a series.
This book was AWFUL. I keep WAITING for it to have a point or at least be funny. I waited until the end of the book. After the end I just wanted my time back. The main character is annoying and dumber than a box of rocks. He meets all the people before about mid-book, and then you keep waiting for something to come of it. NOPE! You wait at the beginning for him to meet the people and then it's not profound (funny or otherwise) nor does it have anything to do with the story. The author's random interjections all over the book were not only pointless drivel to fill pages but irritatingly asinine.
HATED THIS BOOK. I want my time and my credit back. At least I didn't buy it at cover price!
I had to struggle to force myself to give this book one star. The only GOOD thing I liked about the book is that I am happy that I didn't pay for it. A parody it is NOT, other than it looks like the best selling "The Five People You Meet in Heaven".
The book is full of poor references and catch phrases (none of them have anything to add to the book).
All I can say is that "There is 3 hours I'll never get back.
Don't order this book from me, I don't want to be blamed for wasting your time.
