One Star Review Guess Who? (#31)

  1. Some of these make me wonder if we read the same book…

  2. Kay Weisman says:

    Here’s a case where the one-star reviewer was correct. Creepy book.

  3. Kristine A says:

    I can’t believe you didn’t use MY review! I’ve waited forever to see if you would. Come on, “love you forever, stalk you for always” is golden. golden, I tell ya.

    • Travis Jonker says:

      Ha! I definitely missed the boat – I agree that that’s come one-star gold. Well, at least your quote can be here in the comments!

    • Love it, Kristine! Now *your* review will run in my head whenever I think of this book.
