The Worst Book Ever is ‘Moon People’

“Moon People has reshaped my literary perceptions.” – Goodreads reviewer Neil
What I’m going to do before telling you about the epic stinker Moon People by Dale M. Courtney is issue a blanket sic statement for the duration of this article. I think that’s important to say before we move forward. Anyway, this is how chapter one of Moon People by Dale M. Courtney opens (source):
This story begins on a Beautiful sunny day in Daytona Beach Florida With a man by the name of David Braymer. A 45-year-old Single man that works at the local High school as a science teacher and astrology in the 12-grade level. Now he’s been here about 5 years and has become kind of partial to a young lady by the name of Cheral Baskel a local restaurant owner in Daytona Beach. At the moment Cheral’s preparing her restaurant for another Shuttle launch at the cape and everyone always gathers at her place because you can see the launch real good at her place. It’s also on the water and its real close to the cape and she really decks the place out.
You probably have questions. That’s understandable.

After reading a sampling of the 99 Amazon reviews, most of them 5 stars, I was delighted to see that people had found the literary equivalent of the Three Wolf Moon tee-shirt. (The difference being, I’d happily wear a Three Wolf Moon tee-shirt, but I don’t think I could read more than a couple of pages of this book.)
Three Wolf Moon– marvelous. You have encapsulated the charm of this article in three words, Shauna. And I too would happily wear the shirt.
