Normally I read books in one sitting, but I always have at least one book on my Kindle for light reading. Usually they are biographies or non-fiction comedies. This past week I have been reading 99 Reasons Everyone Hates Facebook by Emmet Purcell.
I requested 99 Reasons Everyone Hates Facebook on Netgalley because the second I saw the title, I was drawn. I have a Facebook account, but I’ve grown more and more annoyed with their user interface and now I barely ever use my account. Every time I log in, I say to my hubby, “That’s it, I’m done with Facebook.”
I was excited to read 99 Reasons… and was eager to see if all the reasons I hated it were listed. They were! I loved the list Emmet Purcell chose, but I wound up scanning the book and skipping the in-between paragraphs. I felt the ‘reasons’ were great, but the explanations began to ramble and repeat. I think the concept of the book was great, but it lacked in follow-through.
I rate this book 3 out of 5 stars. I do not think I’d recommend this book to a friend, but I really hope the author finds success. Thank you Netgalley and Smith Publicity.
