I agree it failed to convey the essence of the book. If it wasn't the BOTM, I wouldn't have read it based on the trailer.
I wholeheartedly agree. This book trailer did not pique my interest and, like you said gali, if this book wasn't BOTM, then I would not have picked it up.
Thank you. I don't regret reading it, though. :)

I agree. This book was worth the read, even if the trailer wasn't up to the same standard

I've finally watched the trailer, and I have to be honest, I was not overly moved or excited. It was kinda meh.

I think trailers are good if you want to attract a new breed of readers, but for people who really love books, I don't think it makes much difference.

We are not used to. Besides, most of the time, we already have the synopsis or summary at the back page of the book.
I have seen quite a few trailers and they were good.
Is it becoming more common? I'd heard of them, but this was the first one I've ever seen. Is it a bigger thing in the self-publishing world, I wonder?

I thought the book trailer was very flat and cliche. The voice seemed bored and the music almost made me sleepy. Beautiful- but not interesting.

I loved the book, but I don't think the trailer would have affected me one way or the other

Books with trailers seems wonderful as long as the trailer is well written.

I think a book trailer is an interesting concept. It's a great way to advertise the book. Unfortunately, the trailer for My Trip to Adele didn't interest me much.
I agree with you that the concept of a book trailer is interesting. Hopefully, the author will do a more captivating trailer since most people feel that the one he used didn't serve its purpose well
