More fun with reading the low ratings
A fun game I haven't played in forever where we look up classic texts and see what the people who hated them at to say at Amazon.
The Origin of the Species by Charles Darwin
Sad but funny book., October 4, 2004
K. Carter - See all my reviews Step back from the tree Charles... Do you see the other one beside it? Another step back... More trees? Keep going... Keep going... See the forest? Wow, everything seems to have evolved from a single source you say? Sorry Charles, close but your wrong again. Everything was "designed" and "created" by a single source.
Common sensical talk makes for faulty science, December 3, 2001
Mohammad Nor Syamsu (Nganjuk, Indonesia) - See all my reviews
The fact is that *all* individuals do not survive, all individuals die. Such exactness is important in science and Darwin fails this scientific standard.
Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
Propaganda, August 11, 2001
Reviewer: A reader This fictional story was claimed to be of divine inspiration and was used to justify the shedding of blood...this is a prejudiced view against Southerners, who, Library of Congress Records show paid their servants better wages/profit sharing, and provided better housing than the average industrial New York worker of 1900.
Mrs. Stowe, and her husband, both shared a very high view of mankind, and a very low view of God. They claimed a higher moral authority than the US Constitution, and the Bible, in condemning slavery...rather than the evils that attended slavery.
Deeply, deeply flawed., January 23, 2001
"vdamocles" (Somerville, MA United States) - See all my reviews This book, while well-intentioned, stands as yet another monument to cheap American liberalism, wherein a well meaning person makes a case for his/her (often inaccurate) personal idealisation of an oppressed people, without taking the time to really understand what is happening.
The Jungle by Upton Sinclair
Don't waste your time with this book..., January 14, 2003
Reviewer: A reader...unless you would enjoy reading 350 pages of socialist propoganda. A thinly veiled attempt at brainwashing that shows its true colors during the last chapter.
Could a Communist agenda be more apparent?, May 13, 2001
"eowyn100" (Newtown, PA USA) - See all my reviewsMaybe it could considering the current reviews. This book is trash. It sickens your stomach and makes anyone in a managment position appear to be an evil scrooge who will gladly kill a man for a buck. The story is depressing and exaggerated. The last two chapters could have been taken out of the Communist Manifesto. Just a lowsy book that I was forced to read in school.
My only comment is yes, these people vote. So you need to vote, too.
