I think the second one’s even better:
It’s in the ears, innit?
i’m thinking of buying your book but amazon reviews are swaying me not to…
great concept, poor execution, 20 Jan 2011
P. Gill “paulgill” (Pontyclun, South Wales) – See all my reviews
This review is from: Instinct (Paperback)
I decided to buy the book largely because of the cover and the brief on the back. Sadly, I wish I hadnt bothered. The concept itself is fantastic and the book had enormous potential. The problem here is not the concept itself but the way the story is told. I’m sure the story is meant to crackle but it just plods along and is generally boring. The author doesn’t manage to pull the story off, create any major interest or suspense and the characters were cliches. The last half of the book were skim read. not awful, just not very good
There are good reviews, too:
‘This is one of those books where you have to take off your “Serious Literary Critic” hat and just enjoy it for what it is. If you take that approach, you cannot fail to be entertained by what is a damn fine read.’
Up to you, matey.
Almost every book that I like has some bad reviews on Amazon. Some people are just fuckwits. All this peer review bollocks does my nut in. Who gives a fuck what you think, chumpo?
Those Walls ads. They certainly are wacky. They have a really good truth in there somewhere, but the attempt at making it clever and different gets in the way.
I am going to spend the rest of the afternoon wondering what the next one is going to be about.
Man my arse.
Who wants to man John’s arse?
Please form an orderly queue.
good ad. i don’t know if i think it’s good because everything else is shit or because it really is good.
and by the way, i would hate your book if everyone loved it.
Chuckling at ‘man’ as a sex verb.
I’m going man her tonight.
i find these walls ads depressing.
Mental. And good.
Tis good. Liked the first one best.
