Book Review #889
A Thousand Lies by D. W. St. John
Rating: zero stars (out of four)

I was not impressed with this book. I found several grammatical errors and bad sentence structure while reading. I think the author could have done a better job of proof-reading his text before he got it published. Some of the lines weren’t separated when they should have been and this could have been easily fixed. This book just lacked effort.

Some of the lies didn’t even make sense and there were some that I didn’t feel were applicable to America. I agreed with some of the lies, but some I found offensive. Some of his lies seemed unfounded and I didn’t understand why they were in the book.

I felt that some of the truths were a stretch because they sounded too similar to ones that I had already read in the book: On one page he has “Christianity is a religion of peace and love” and then two pages later he has “Christianity is a religion of peace, love and forgiveness.”

Some lies I felt were to simple to be included in this book: “The more things change, the more they change."

Some lies were ridiculous: “Monkeys consider themselves foolish.” What? Why is that in here? What does it have to do with America?

There were some that just had spelling errors or typos: “We may trust the government to know when to stop taking our rihts”

I think the author liked the idea of having a thousand lies, but he ran out and then made up ones that had no purpose or just made you go, “What? What is this doing in there?” An example: “Cakes must be done when they are removed from the oven.”

Some lies I don’t even know what he is trying to say: “The great art mas has created ameliorate his depredation of the earth and justify his future existence.”

This book fell short in so many places, I would not recommend it.
