"Heyyyy I had to read this book for school and it was the worst thing I ever read. A worthless good for nothing piece of junk! Actually it is good for something. I took this book with me to rifle practice and I shot at this instead of the target. I got busted but hey it was worth it. Mail me if you want a picture of my shooting."

"I guess I just don't get it. Yes, I understand the book has a much broader meaning than just a few articles put together. What I don't get is the "importance" everyone keeps talking about. I didn't find this book to be in the least bit important. In fact, I found it to be incredibly lame and borderline offensively stupid. I don't care if the book tells me to stay away from online emotional outbursts; there are plenty of other writers who accomplish the same goal by far less annoying and more clever means. Each chapter is tedious, repetitious, and inane... and there's over 100 pages of it! I’m ashamed that I’ve ever read it."

"I would have to say that I have easily read close to 1,000 books in my lifetime. I would also easily have to say that I have never read a book that was as incomprehensible as Shoot it into my veins. I really do not believe that one has to have side notes or any type of 'helpers' to read and understand a book. Yet, I firmly believe that Shoot it into my veins should be accompanied by several texts explaining page by page what you just read. It was so disjointed and difficult to comprehend that I was beginning to question my sanity in even attempting to sift through it and find a plot. I would not recommend it to anyone and I feel sorry for anyone who is forced to read it. I chose to read it and would not make that choice a second time. I read it as a part of a book group assignment – and we all thought it was shit."

"I ended up throwing this book away after reading the first chapter... It’s all about how older people are slowly taking over Facebook... And it even calls us Baby Boomers... If you enjoy reading a book that tells you what you should or shouldn’t do and invents nicknames for you, just go for it! And I'm a very open minded person but this book is a no... ”

"Whatever you do, do not read this book. It's too long, it's really hard to read, and there is literally no story, just a bunch of articles that flat out suck. A lot of people say that this book is packed with meaning, BUT IT'S NOT. This is a book that talks about internet anger and it even quotes the Bible. THAT SOUNDS REALLY INTERES-
TING!! Yea right. This book is a big waste of time, it should be out-lawed from our schools. This book in my opinion, should get the "Turkey of the Century" award. A big book B-B-Q should be devoted to all the copies in print."

"Fair speech? I’ll give you my fair speech here... This book is an excellent substitute for valium... The most artificially inflated phenomenon since the 1929 stock market, and likewise this book seems like a worthy instigator of a great depression."

"At first I did like the book. It looks nice. Then it just started to suck right around when I started reading it. I hated the book so much that I forgot its name... asdjhfksaskd LOL it’s too much I just recommend that you DO NOT READ IT.”

"This type of literature is not going to hold an audience anymore. So many people have the opportunity to live interesting lives nowadays why would they stop to read a book of this length with a bunch of articles on things we do every day when they could be spending the time actually LIVING their own lives? It was a real drag. I already told everybody I know not to read it to spare them their precious time."

"THIS IS THE MOST BORING BOOK I HAVE EVER READ. I KEPT ON THINKING THE NEXT LINE WOULD BE "AND THEN WE BRING THE COWS IN" STRAIGHT OUT OF THE ARCHERS. BACK AT YOU WHITIE. IF YOU WRITE 120 PAGES OF A BOOK YOU HAVE TO EXPECT SOME DISSIN' HOMIE BOY OR GIRL WHATEVER. ALSO IMMIGRANTS ARE NOT GOOD THEYR TAKING UR JOBS SO THIS BOOK IS OFFENSIVE FOR EVERY HARD WORKING CITIZEN."

"How can anybody like this book? Whoever said this is the best classic ever written must be truly brain-dead. What could be enjoyable about a book that primarily consists of a guide on: a) how to read, b) how to write, and c) how to keep away from emotional outbursts. If I wanted all that stuff I would have gone to a first grade all over again."

"Dear lord this book was awful. One of the very few books that I have been unable to finish, or indeed even get to half-way. It was just TOO BORING! Before throwing it in the charity bin I skimmed through the rest to see if something, anything, happened that I would be interested in. Nope. Just a bunch of articles talking about how important it is not to believe everything you read on the internet."
