    1. Having now purchased a copy of the latest version of this novel which promises to address many issues in this pre-release I find I have nothing to add or subtract to my review. Some of the issues that some people saw may not have been issues for me. I did manage to read it through entirely once again and found it to be just as entertaining the second time through.Being a frequenter of GoodReads I came across this gem of a book as The Nine Inch Bride. It was probably a title far from what would i [...]

    2. There's not a lot wrong with this book that a good editor couldn't fix. There are scads of misspellings and punctuation and grammatical errors, but more bothersome is that it needs to be cut by about half.The premise is just wacky enough to be interesting, and it could carry the work if the story were allowed to stand on its own. Unfortunately, Sahar spends way too much time pontificating. And what she is saying is not only repetitive and boring, but really unclear. She refers at least 3 times t [...]

    3. The current economic culture is certainly one that deserves to be satired a bit. // Conundrum: Nine Inch Bride// is a first-person narrative about Ken, a trader who has just been laid off due to a recession in the near future, has been the victim of a forced break-up by his lover’s father, and has been essentially hung out to dry by the system. With little to lose he agrees to a meeting with an old friend and his new partner. Through the agency of that partner, Ken is witness to the beginnings [...]

    4. Whoa, the page for this title -- Conundrum, the first book in an intended Nine Inch Bride series of fiction -- is saying that it's currently out of print! That's a surprise to me and a terrible, terrible shame.The author of Conundrum, the so-called "anonym," is brilliantly insightful. I think this book is best described by: (1) a quotation of praise featured on the back of my paperback edition calling it "a scrumptious satire that rewards close attention," and; (2) the concise description provi [...]

    5. The metaphors at the beginning are extremely forced. The plot? Well, not that bad but gets a bit incoherent once Sahar appears. Also, the gimmick of playing with names seems to pop up without rationale and really goes nowhere. An Brand? Come on. Gerd Bratenberg did a fantastic job with gender loaded names in Egalia's Daughters (Karla Marx, Walta Whitwom). Overall, the writing and crafting of the book are just not up to the standards of a publishable novel.

    6. Sorry. I just couldn't get into this book. The writing felt forced. I felt nothing for the main character. Maybe it gets better after the second chapter, but This felt like a male book. Male main character. Just not for me.
