REVIEW OF PERSON

here's a negative review of Person that i liked reading.

here's a funny part from it:

"But for every reasonable jab at ordinary conformity there’s a troubling build-up of rage and self-destructive desire that makes Person incredibly unsettling.

In other words, he’s a great example of why I carry Mace."


IMPOSE MAGAZINE has person on "favorite of 2010"

I think he would have liked a sculpture next to the couch.

'just as the character embodies a “so what” attitude, so too does the reader.'

disagree.

Haha, mace.
Except they don't know you are one of the nicest people, ever.

This is great. I love when people review things and it's clear that he/she just simply didn't get it. Best example:

"Person’s back jacket claims “You will read this book and remember why you mainly read books that have sex in them,” but none of the so-called sex scenes approach erotic. They are sterile, depressing and gross, as when the neighbor scrapes flakes of skin off his head post-coitus. Mostly, though, they’re downright boring."

Completely missed the joke. Haha.
