Gentlemen: One-word reviews!

Listen, reviews are complicated. They’ve got, like, a bunch of words all strung together, and it’s like, What? So I went through various articles and blogs and found the key words used to describe Gentlemen. Basically, I made like Schoolhouse Rock and unpacked my adjectives.



Gentlemen, in a word…
“Creepy”—The New York Times
“Tantalizing”—The Book Resort
“Riveting”—Booklist
“Nuanced”—Booklist
“Suspenseful”—Junior Library Guild
“Dark”—Publishers Weekly
“Brutal”—Publishers Weekly
“Frightening”—Kirkus
“Realistic”—Kirkus
“Brilliant”—Wondrous Reads
“Shocking”—Wondrous Reads
“Muscular”—The Cleveland Plain Dealer
“Chilling”—The Cleveland Plain Dealer
“Awesome”—Cupcake Witch

    One-word titles, one-word reviews! A curious theme for someone so loquacious. Intriguing.

    Yes, it’s all false advertising! I lure people in with the promise of select, carefully chosen words, and then… BAM: Word-splosion!
