Are you sure it had a bad word? Can you read good enough to tell?  Maybe I was just trying to spell Duck. Stupid autocorrect. That’s what I get for typing novels on my iPhone. :)

Looks like someone let their nine year old read your book and then post to amazon…

Wow… just… wow.

I may have to reevaluate my 5-star review of Hard Magic… after I finish re-reading M.H.I. for the third tome. :P

What’s odd is that “Holly” has written two reviews, and the other one has a vastly different tone to it. She even spells “poignant” properly, punctuates, and capitalizes.

Perhaps it was someone using Holly’s usually literate reputation to tarnish Larry’s outstanding works of literature.

“Holly, show the court where Mr. Correia used his bad words on you… show us using this doll.”

rofl. I was trying to read through this thread on the sly during a meeting at work until I came accross this and laughed out loud. Since the game was up I shared your post and the context with the other Firefighters. We are still laughing.

She/he didn’t read it. It was an audio….

Guest

I thought that was obvious from the highly literate nature of the post. No, I don’t believe that person read one of Larry’s books. I’m impressed they could figure out how to post a review of it. lol

Maybe Bronson Pinchot mispronounced something. It could happen. (a la _News Radio_ with “Joey Buttafuoco.”)

Was going to put off this one for a bit. Should put this one off for a bit. I have way too much to read and the last thing I need right now it to start another set, but this may have put me over the edge. I think I have to buy this one now. The entertainment value of this nonsense is just priceless.

You gave it a shot, Larry, but maybe writing about consepts just isn’t for you. Stick to the gunnie porn.

Dang. Somebody doesn’t get out on the playground much at recess. Based on “Holly”‘s review of the movie “Passchendaele” (which was a great movie, BTW), I’m assuming someone’s near-illiterate overly-pious second-cousin (from parents related prior to marriage) got ahold of “Holly”‘s keyboard. Or there was an unfortunate accident in the lobotomy lab between the two reviews…

I don’t care what holly says, Joe Biden’s review said the book contained the most audacious military strike in 500 years.

Talk about a raving review.

Guest

I thought Al Gore claimed that Larry INVENTED the military strike.

“…contained the 2nd most audacious military strike in 500 years.”

There, FTFY.

Good lord, how will you go on after facing that biting wit and impeccable grammar?

Actually, I have to say that David Hines’ review of the first three “Paladin of Shadows” novels – which gave birth to the “OH JOHN RINGO NO” internet meme – probably qualifies as the best book review ever written. But Holly’s “Hard Magic” review might be a close second….

…And Paul, you’re a better man than I: I couldn’t bring myself to read the rest of Holly’s reviews. But the comments accompanying her “Hard Magic” review were priceless.

It’s too bad everyone here wants to jump on the bandwagon here and make fun of Holly. By doing so I think you miss the whole consept of her review.

Either Holly does not have English as a first language or second and has trouble with the book or Holly is reading above her elementary school grade level (I’d guess 3rd grade).

Mr. Correia, forget about poor Holly. The legit appearing blurb from Goodreads.com is the real crime. I just finished “Hard Magic” on Audible, and find I completely missed the part where Jake is a hardboiled d?ck!
