Ouch! A New Review!

Over on Amazon.com, a user named Wayne reviewed The Adventures of The Peregrine Omnibus Edition Volume One. He bought the audible version and… well, he didn’t like it. Here’s what he had to say:

I want my credits back! One star.

No, really can I get my money back?

It’s hard to say how BAD this book is. The story line is so horrible I could not get past the 3rd hour of this train wreck. The writing style seems tailored to a third grader, with a little violence.

Congratulations to Berry Reese. Out of over 300 audible books that I’ve listened to, with its share of regrets and disappointments, the Peregrine Omnibus is the fist that I could not finish.

Sorry you didn’t like it, Wayne! Hopefully your next audible purchase will meet with your approval.

It’s never fun to get a negative review but nothing will ever please everyone. Thanks again for the review.

  1. I haven’t read the Peregrine Omnibus yet but I am almost done with the Lazarus Gray collection and have enjoyed it immensely. I would go so far as to say you have quickly become my favorite of the New Pulp authors I have read. Perhaps this fellow is unfamiliar with the Pulp tradition?

    • Thanks, David! I really appreciate that – the Peregrine stories were written over ten years ago so I think the Lazarus tales are higher quality. I’m not sure what Wayne’s tastes are but I did wonder if he was a pulp fan in general.
