One Star Review Guess Who? (#18)

image 500x375 One Star Review Guess Who? (#18)

Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on Goodreads or Amazon?

When I saw young women in my age reading [title], there was one thing I felt. The culture is lost, the folk tale is lost. The meaning of folk tales is lost. The generation who is in my age were grown up without books. The identity of culture itself is lost. There is no story.

And, this story is far from fantasy. I have read many books including fantasy.

I watched the film. After 10 minutes, I was doing other things.

    WHAT?! I’m convinced that this review is based on the 10 minutes of the movie this person watched. There’s no way she read Sorcerer’s Stone and claimed that the folk tale is lost. It’s not fantasy? What is it, then?

    “The identity of culture itself is lost.” Thanks a lot, Harry Potter! :)

    I read some more of her reviews. She also gave one star to Pride & Prejudice. Clearly, she and I see the world differently.
