Ya Dumb! We Review the Reviews of "Origin in Death" by J.D. Robb
Here we are again with another We Review the Reviews episode, this time for “Origin in Death!”
These reviews are odd, because there were very few One Star reviews. We do have one, but most of the reviews are 2 to 5 Stars. But never fear! There are a lot of really interesting reviews for us to discuss here.Starting with our only One Star Review: “Don’t Bother.”
Then we move on to all the other reviews in which we learn:
There’s too much “impotent verbiage and dialogue.”
If you get too confused while reading the books, maybe it’s not Nora’s writing, maybe it’s just that you’re dumb.
Cloning and Genetics are apparently Science Fiction, and this book had Cloning and Genetics “up the wazoo.”
The dialogue is corny, and there’s too much repartee and banter. Also, all the rhapsodizing about Eve’s new leather coat made the book sound like a gay porn (?)
Eve never thinks about Roarke’s needs!
These reviewers don’t know Peabody, so they shouldn’t be calling her Delia!!
The sex in the books is “Sooooo Fake!” So says a man “fairly experienced in the intimate arts.”
Roarke definitely does NOT have “Whiskey Dick.”
Also, we talk about Roarke’s dick way too much.
Susan Ericksen is sensational.
This book is “bonkers-as-shit.”
Charles is definitely NOT a “creepy sleeze.”
In our “Podcast Business” section, we read a really lovely email we received.
