2   lightning_tnlightning_tn – There’s are a few things I that I like about the book, but there are more things that bother me than I like.

Honestly, you will not see any score lower than that because a.) I’m pretty choosy about what I read. I don’t get many random Advanced Copies and some are from my own bookshelf. (code for I bought it myself). b.) If I don’t finish it I’m not going to bother talking about it. c.) I know authors put a lot into to their work, the effort writing their “baby”, editing, publishing it, and marketing it. I’m not going to “trash” that, that’s not the kind of person I am. And if you want that kind of reviewer, then I hate to see you go (I really do), but I understand.
