Edgar Rice Burroughs

Standard

Needs to stay in his grave and quit trying to comment on my blog. Better yet, he needs to stay in the jungle with his ape.  I have read the Brothers Karamazov– when I was 16 and still in high school.  I also read The Idiot at the same age.  I can read in Latin, Spanish and some Italian.  Just because I didn’t like a book you seem to adore enough to have written yourself, doesn’t make me stupid.  Give it a rest, already. Or contact me with your real name as we both know you aren’t a man that died in 1950. AND I have read Tarzan as well, by the way. I have an opinion, you have an opinion and this is my blog. I will write what I please. I won’t be bullied by a dead man (or live one either, for that matter.)

My definition of thriller is obviously different that yours, Dead Sir. Thriller means, to me, that the book is so good and so fast paced that it can’t be put down.  Sorry to say the book you and I disagree about was  very much one I could (and did) put down.  I suggest you and I agree to disagree and let it go.

If you DID write the book of whence I speak, you need to learn to take criticism. How did you ever become a writer with such thin skin?  Not everyone is going to love your work. Sorry, but that is reality.  Your comments to me are not going to change my mind and make  me suddenly love the book. I just didn’t. I apologize if that helps but please don’t call me stupid for not liking the book.  I really am quite intelligent.
