Not the book

This is not The Wednesday Wars. This is simply the author discussing the book and others.

CHANGE THE TITLE!!!

Change the title! This is an interview not the book. Very frustrating and a waste of money.

Not as advertised

This is NOT the audio book. This is the reading of a small chapter. Not good audible!

Wish I’d read others reviews first!

This is not the audiobook but a book club discussion about the book. The title should indicate that it is not the entire book.

why must you do this

I came for a book. I get everything but a book. Nice one. I thought I would easily be able to learn about this book but apparently not.
