Becky Black (beckyblack) | 16 comments The description on this edition of Cujo by Stephen King reads more like someone's review.

I'd added descriptions in the past, but never changed one from a one that's already there and I also didn't want to go wipe out someone's review that they'd taken the trouble to write, even if it is in the wrong place.

Can someone with a bit more experience (or boldness!) take a look and give it the right description?

Thanks!

Adam | 23 comments I noticed that some descriptions were just taken from Amazon. For more popular books I've noticed Amazon will post reviews for the book in their description field. This doesn't qualify as a description for me either. I usually fix them to what the back of the book description says, if I own the book. I don't own nor have I read "Cujo" though.


Ralph Gallagher | 212 comments I've replaced it with the description from another edition of the book.

Linda2 I've seen "descriptions" that were actually the first few paragraphs of the book.
