Sorting through some downloaded ebooks to see if I want to keep any of them or not.
I looked on line to see what the fuck - Oscar Wilde & Nicole Audrey Spector - Fifty Shades of Dorian Gray was.
I found this review:

********DO NOT READ THIS BOOK!!!!! THIS BOOK IS SHIT!!!!!************

IF YOU HAVE ANY SHRED OF DIGNITY, YOU WILL AVOID THIS SHIT BOOK FOR ALL COST!!!

THIS BOOK IS SHIT BECAUSE:

1) Author is self-inserting herself (character a bitch)
2) butchers the original story and characters
3) shitty, unrealistic (almost laughable) sex scenes
4) Author is talentless hack that can't write for shit
5) ruined my MOST FAVOURITE BOOK!!!!!!

WARN OTHERS BEFORE THEY READ THIS SHIT!!!! IT COULD SAVE A LIFE!!!!

*******************************************************************************************

I have decided to throw it out.

I would have actually given it a try if I read a review like that. :)

:D I might have but I fucking hated 50 shades.

Recommended:

Daniel James Brown - The Boys in the Boat [non-fiction]
About the US rowing team that goes to the 1936 Olympic games in Berlin.
Doesn't sound all that riveting, but it's actually a really good story.

Laura Hillenbrand - Unbroken [non-fiction]
Brilliant story, fucking unbelievable. Also involves the 1936 Olympic games in Berlin.

Michelle Alexander - The New Jim Crow [non-fiction]
Why are there so many black people in prison in the states?
Seriously scary shit.

P.S - I'll just quickly fuck this in the bin before Dan sees... Star Trek - [TNG] - The Next Generation Companion - Larry Nemecek .

I'll read any old shite if I don't have a decant book.
That was before I had a KIndle. I burnt it afterwards. Load of bollocks.

Happy Drunkenness! ;)
