I've had one full read from her, one partial, and 3 rejections overall. Even after all that I have to say that Alice is a real pro, she's fast, she's honest, and she's human. I cannot recommend her enough. She rocks!

As others have noted, she's quick! With how fast she responds to a partial, though, it seems suspicious. It's obvious that she's not actually reading them. It seems like she just reads the synopsis and basis her rejection on that alone. Most agents at least give it a few days before rejecting a partial. She's by far the only agent I've experienced who responds this fast to a partial. Impressive client list, sure, but she seems pretty disrespectful, honestly. Definitely won't be querying her again.

That was an 11-minute rejection. I respect an agent's decision, if it isn't right for you then it isn't right for you, but gees I'm still reeling from that.
