Book Review: Mr. Famous and Me
At the first sight of gray hair, a woman decides to stop waiting for the love of his life and find him in six months time. Even if she needs to move to South Korea to do it.
I'm angry at this book. It could have been good. I love plots like these. But the writing is absolutely horrific. I don't understand how it got so many five star reviews on Smashwords. It's difficult to even understand what's going on, let alone understand and enjoy reading it. Here is the first line, letter for letter:
En I was a child I was against any woman used face lift operation to change her face or her body .was saying every decade have its own charm.
But I was wrong
It's barely readable. The rest of the book is written in the same quality.
On top of the writing, it's formatted badly. The print size changes for no reason, and I had to click through random blank pages in the middle of the book to get to more of the story.
Just to make sure that the poor quality and formatting wasn't Smashwords' fault, I downloaded a PDF of the story to compare it with the online reader. Same typos, same formatting problems.
What's really sad is that if this story was written with even semi-decent technique, I would have liked it. It's full of romantic fantasy that can make a girl's head turn, if she's able to ignore the random periods, typos, and lack of capitalization.
Instead of reading this book, I recommend finding some good Korean Dramas and Netflix and watching them. They have similar plots and have much better quality.
If you want to see for yourself how bad this book is, you can find it for free on Smashwords.
