In A Nutshell:
I did not know what to expect when I started Best Seller. The book description had not given me a lot of information to go on. But I quickly found a book that grabbed my attention and held on to it until the very end.

Richard Rossi wants to be an author. He has a manuscript that he feels is worthy of publishing, but he keeps getting rejection after rejection from every publishing house he sent it too. Until the day that fate seems to step in. That day, the mailman put a lett

I was looking forward to reading this book. I liked the idea of a book about a book and how it seems to enthrall the nation. After read Best Seller, I have one word in mind... Creepy!

From the start we are introduced to Richard Rossi who will do anything to become a published author, he just wants to receive one less rejection letter. He ends up at a party where a neighbor has offered to send his manuscript and name to someone who could make all his dreams come true.

Without recapping the entire store, his book is printed and strange things begin to happen. Strang
