It's not safe to be a book reviewer

You don't know what kind of lunatics you might cross. If you look at her book page, you'll see this author doesn't even have reviews that personally attack her.


What is she smoking? Why are you so obsessed in finding out one teeny tiny human being who gave your book one star????


Who cares if this reviewer is using someone else's picture, or is actually who she says she is except using a fake name, or if she's a timetraveller come all the way from 1962 Planet Mars??


I use a picture of Dean Winchester, and God only knows if I'm really Jensen Ackles. Does that matter?? I'm not stealing someone's social security or credit card details. I'm not stalking some 20-something Asian girl with malicious intent. I just want to review God-damn books.


Who's the real stalker? Who's the real danger? Who's the real creep in this scenario?? Seriously.
