    An amusing read, and after looking at Amazon.com & co.uk, it seems reviewers are geting revenge with 1 star reviews.

    Well after repeating her expletives several times it seems no-more comments were posted by the author just a shed load by other people

    Wow, leaving out her insane behaviour her grammer was terrible, it made me want to scrape out the language centre of my brain with a rusty spoon just so I wouldn't have to experience it any more. Eep!

    Yes but there is some context involved, I don't hold myself up as a beacon of syntax but this is someone attempting to portray themselves as an author. I know that my language formation is usually lapse on here but this forum is more about the information. Besides, I'm usually posting on here after being awake for 20+ hours so its sheer luck that I can manage a reasonable approximation of the english language at all
