Read full description of the books:
my name is jeanette.
i am very tall and my hair is the colour of weak tea.
this is my review and i am writing it by my own hand in the year of our lord twenty-thirteen.
i did read this book, and my teeth did grind and my eyes did cross for that there were no upper-case letters on any page. no, nary a one. nor were there any quotation marks neither.
i understand that the narrator is barely literate, and it is for this that we are meant to see that she does not know proper punctuation and capitalization. i did puzzle over this. for if she has only just learned to read and write, how is it that she can spell challenging words like hierarchy with never a dictionary nearby?
when i finished the reading of this book i did say,
holy mackerel, that was bleak!
or it may be that it was wholly mackerel which i did say, for i do not know if mackerel are holy. the story is wholly bleak and not holy. this i do know.
as i closed this book i did blink my eyes.
and i wondered, for i could not help myself. and the thing which i wondered was this:
did the author write this on her mobile phone? using only her thumbs?
this is my review and i have been writing it by my own hand.
every word i spelled out.
every letter i wrote.
