Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
When I was a member of the Vietnam Veterans of America, I got a newsletter which included reviews of books about the Vietnam war. One book so reviewed was "Nam" by Danielle Steel.
I wish I had the review, but it went something like "I receive many books about the War, some good and some bad, but never has one reached such depths of badness as this one.... Apparently the author learned a few words and phrases, such as 'AK-47 and 'fragging' and has built a book around them.... I was glad to finish it...." and so on.
The review couldn't have made the author happy, but I suspect that as long as she got the checks she didn't care.
