Your fjord story showing the security guard in a light, that does not at all contribute to anything in the story itself, but show your personal opinion about certain religions and societies ...
To me stuff like that does not belong in a book about photography, an artform as diverse and different as it is.
Again, all my personal opinion and while I did not like the sample I read, that does not mean that I don't like your images or anything. It is just the same as any other art form and I feel I am not compatible with your writing style and that is totally fine, as I know there will be a ton of people out there that you will reach with your book exactly because of the way it is written. So I am not trying to say it is a bad book, I just say it is not for me, judging from the few pages I did read.
After all you did what most of us are just talk about and you finished your book project!
