Criticism Of Strange State

"So I have three basic issues with this book. The first being the author didn't do his homework with regard to the whole "voodoo" nonsense. The second being that the author did not flesh out the stories. The final criticism I have is that the author pursued a skeptical or debunking approach to several legends."

I don't usually pay attention to reviews (esp. negative ones) but this at least rose above the rest: It was well-reasoned (even if I don't agree) and well-written. However, what this writer sees as a failing of the book in general, I see as a failing of the book to meet his/her specific desires.
