Overview

I started writing this book initially as a straight forward assassination thriller; based on a technique I dreamed up to kill remotely.

I do despise the super wealthy and powerful capitatists of this country. They have ruined it for generations to come. They ruined it for me.

I was once enamored with Ayn Rand. She was an idiot and a hypocrite.

I express a lot of opinion in this and speak the absolute truth about the deception of 911.

I get a lot of angry reviews of this book from folks assuming I was going to champion the right wing point of view.

I am an unemployed architect. My future, which suits me just fine, will be that of a substitute school teacher, advanced guitarist and instructor of guitar, Volvo restorer and conspiracy theorist. And novelist. Right now, my penchant seems to be short little novels, novellas I guess they are. This is making me quite prolific. I might be in error. Maybe harder work on longer novels is best. I would be delighted to have any feedback on my works. Most of all, please read "The Undergrad" also available at Smashwords.

... and poorly written crap. No, we aren't just talking about the bad grammar and editing, Mr. Author. Interesting that you make the incredibly tacky move of reviewing your own book (with five stars???) and cry "don't hate my story!" which is entirely based on your own hatred of another author and story. Don't waste your time folks.

Hate filled stream of nonsense. I understand that the author is free to express his opinions. Using a sledgehammer instead of reason and rational thought makes this work a joke. Ayn Rand should return from the grave to haunt the author.

As a reader who is politically neutral, I find the book to be one mans frustration with being unemployed and jealous of those who have jobs. The book is a diatribe against working people. A total waste of time and if I could give it no stars, that would be generous! The author has a bone to chew and it overshadows everything else in the story. Too bad. The writing is terrible and the grammar is grade school at best. Hope he finds a real job so that we don't have to suffer through another one of these. Couldn't finish it, too much politicizing!

Sorry, your book is neither fast or interesting. It is boring and hard to read because of the cry baby, poor me attitude, the bad spelling and grammar, and just the overall poor writing. Perfection is not expected in new authors on this site, but one does expect to be able to read the piece without having to " decode" it. Free or not, a certain level of expertise is expected from someone who fancies himelf an author. Your attempt goes way beyond a few typos. Just remember, no book is really free. The reader spent their time reading it. I hope if you really want to continue writing, you will make an effort to improve your craft. Good luck.

Poorly written. Not interesting. In his own review (he says he is giving his book 5 stars) there are mistakes in spelling/grammar. Not worth finishing.

I haven't finished it but I will. I agree with some of the other reviewers about the spelling etc, and that is something the author needs to pay attention to. But as for the story, what's wrong with having a 'bone to chew' as one reviewer said? And the 'poor me' attitude referred to is easy to pass off as the character's perspective and what is wrong with that attitude anyway when it reflects a genuine or perceived injustice? We all go through a stage of feeling like that when something very bad happens that should have been avoided. If seen as the attitude of the author well where is the problem? Although he is (justifiably) pissed off the guy is accepting his situation and working at other things - writing for example - therefore he isn't a 'cry baby' in my estimation. He's pissed off and saying why but also being creative in doing so. I can't help but feel that if the other reviewers of this book suffered because of other peoples greed and incompetence to the extent that they couldn't feed their families or even if they couldn't afford a simple luxury like a yearly vacation or a car they would be quick on the moan about their own circumstances. At least this guy has had the presence of mind and fortitude to find a way to channel a negative reality through a positive outlet and at the same time begin to change that negative reality into a positive one. Ha, I'm sure John Galt would be proud. The story itself is fine, I am enjoying it so far but as I already said I haven't finished it. I reviewed it before finishing it because I was dismayed that other reviewers seemed more interested in taking fault with the 'attitude' of the author than with the story.

I am rating my book at five to balance the spiteful one star received so far. Clearly the reader does not agree with my politics. About half of the country doesn't but the other half does and will so with increasing intensity and passion as this economy and our culture festers and declines. Don't "frag" the book or the story contained within. I have had cudos from others that like the story. Sure there are errors. I don't expect to sell my books. I justs started writing and put these out there to see if anyone is interested. They are and they understand that the perfection of a traditionally published book is not mandated in this venue. My stories are fast and interesting. I have nothing to apologize for.
