Famous Rejections

A friend sent me the link to Famous Rejections today. I laughed out loud at some of them. One thing these rejections have that mine do not is an implication that the agent/publisher has read the book. I think I would much rather be told "… I recommend that it be buried under a stone for a thousand years" as in the case of Lolita, than receive a two-inch strip of paper with a generic message.

Or, maybe I wouldn't.

I think I would prefer to think they rejected it because they didn't read it. Makes it easier to send it out to someone else. But then again, feedback is always appreciated. Thanks for the link, funny.
