The way i have it figure is like that: i don't the criticizing. After all for a writer, any writer, critic is often good feedback because it will help the writer see his or her flaws. But if you're going to write a mean review, it's better for everyone's peace of mind if you keep your critic to yourself. Think of the writer's feeling. Obviously she's doing something she likes, which is writing. If she made some mistake and failed to noticed them, so waht? No one's perfect. At least you could rry assume that this is her debut as a writer and might not have much experience.
The way you're citicizing her might do her more harm than good. >:/ get a life.

I had hoped "Road To Freedom" had a story worth reading; the title suggested that it did; perhaps it actually does, BUT, the lack a a proofreader who spoke English made it virtually unreadable and impossible to get much past the first 50 pages. In those pages I was introduced to a struggle against greed, a struggle for freedom, and an inventive young woman, but the unbelievable word pictures - loosing 60 pounds of weight and not having it noticed by a step sister, in one's face - and gross vocabulary errors, beyond mere malaprops, overpowered the joy of unfolding a grand adventure and replaced it with the frustration of trying to understand the sentences and paragraphs enough so that they could paint the scene that, I suspect,was the author was trying for.

    No editing at all

    The story was okay, but this was clearly not edited or proofread. The mistakes were so bad they distracted me from the book.

    Good Story but writer needs HELP!

    I have to agree with CGloves2read. The story is interesting but needs about two Red ink pens worth of changes and corrections.
