The Most Awesome Book of All Time

It’s hard to believe someone actually approved something like this to be sold on Amazon.com. There’s even a Kindle edition!

  1. I who don't speak english as my first tongue reacted on the shit grammer. Maybe the story was such pure crap no one actually read it which in turn means no one could spot the errors.

  2. I review books for authors and publishing companies, and I've had a couple of books like this come across my desk. I get that self publishing is an option for anyone, but these people should at least have a family member or friend read it over and tell them it's garbage before they pay to publish!

  3. Some thoughts:

    Could it be that this guy is a genius and this is a money laundering scheme?

    :-)

    Is that not the front of a ship from 2001 on the cover of the first book?

  4. OH MY GOD IT'S CALLED MOON PEOPLE.

    This is hilarious. I love how it has 4.5 stars on amazon because of all the people who wrote facetious 5 star reviews. "This is a book. And Also its a Good book, one to read. The auther who goes by the Name of Daryl M. Corteney really has a nack for Good science Fiction telling. Also the Story."

    Maybe in a few years it'll be like the Star Wars Christmas special.

  5. AAGH! WHAT IS THIS I DONT EVEN, I FEEL LIKE MY HEAD IS GOING TO EXPLODE FROM THE VAST AMOUNT SOPHISTICATION THIS MAN IS! He needs to be the next Stephen Hawking, QUICK!

    P.S. I accidentally the whole English language.

  6. I'm a Sci-Fi author myself, and I'm stunned by this crap. The writing seems to have been created by a young child. But what I really find disturbing is the picture of the Discovery from 2001 on the cover, and what appears to be the Death Star on the cover of the other two.

    The general public is suspicious of a shuttle launch because it's Halloween? Really? Even if the book had perfect grammar and punctuation, I would have put it down right at that sentence.

    To all self-published writers, please use a proof-reader, consider workshops, and at least talk to a literary agent…

  7. It's utterly spectacular in its awfulness! A shining monument to misapplied labor. And now I feel deprived that I didn't get to take 12-grade level Astrology where I went to school. All we had was astronomy.

  8. Maybe it is meant to read that way, to appeal to those who speak that way. :)

    It might also become normal to see question marks after every sentence in the future in books, you know, to read how many people seem to sound these days when they are telling you something? Like everything sounds like its a question? Where the voice goes up a little? Americans do it and here in the UK its popular with folk without regional accents?

    Then we can all read books in the future with a voice in our heads that constantly sounds like everything is a question? Brilliant? :)

  9. For a writer wondering where to publish the new novel, this example is depressing. I was thinking of the brave new world of internet publishing but if Amazon could publish crap like this then quality no longer matters.Once again I fear the dumbing down of America.

  11. I haven't read that one yet… I hope it's as good as Let's go play at the Adams' by Mendal Johnson… I really like that one…

  12. I feel that this book needs the added support of illustrations… y'know, drawn by your wrong hand with crayons? Maybe even line drawings so you can colour in yourself whilst you read the intellectual and thrilling story line!! Ooooooo the possibilities!

    And yes, my fellow geek-oids, I'm being sarcastic :o) x

  16. I find it ironic and humorous that the title of the chapter if "The beginning of the end," as trying to read this one page was like watching the beginning of the end of my sanity play out.

  18.  Darn it, I really have to remember to spell check myself first: "…chapter is 'The beginning…"  Is.  Not if.

  20.  Nobody has to "approve" anything on Amazon or on Kindle.  It's a marketplace and people can sell what they'd like, including crap books.  In fact, it was a very big deal last year when a "how to" book for pedophiles got banned.  The fact that the poster seems shocked that "there's even a Kindle edition," speaks to the poster's lack of knowledge about what's going on on Amazon.

    The truth is there's probably worse up on Kindle.  But so what?  The readable books rise and sell.  The books like this one sink and are mostly bought by friends of the author.

  21. No. :( My eyes hurt. This doesn't help those of us who prefer to publish ourselves. Either budget for an editor, or budget for the time to edit. It took me at least twice as long to edit my book as it did to write it. Please don't give up on indies. Some of us put crazy amounts of work into bringing the best we can to readers. It's not just about money. We like books. If you like books, you do the best you can for them. It's part of the Word Nerd Code.
