When readers just don’t get it.

Here’s a fun link to share with readers. Lincoln Michel at Electric Literature found this Tumblr of One-Star Book Reviews of the classics.

Here’s why Romeo and Juliet received one star:

“First of all, the whole thing is almost all dialogue.”

Or Proust’s Swann’s Way:

“I didn’t really get the cookie thing.”

Even if you don’t share this, you should read some for your own enjoyment. Doing so certainly made my Monday better.
