    Story
    "Way too basic and rudimentary"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone in middle school perhaps.


    Has Say This, Not That turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    How could the performance have been better?

    Better lessons


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Narrator was fine. The book was meager and the lessons are really best for a young adult or someone with Aspergers.


    Any additional comments?

    No
