Hummmmmm, One More Time

OK, sure, you're tired of hearing about James Frey. So am I, but this long book review, written back in 2003, is pretty funny. The author, John Dolan, begins by saying "This is the worst thing I've ever read," and he concludes that the book is "self-aggrandizing, simple-minded, poorly observed, repetitious, maudlin drivel." Unlike a few million other readers, Dolan wasn't fooled.

If Oprah hadn't picked it, this would be the non-story of the year.

I already didn't feel at all bad that I hadn't read it. Now I feel even better. Thanks for the link.
