Form Rejection: 7/18 (somewhat personalized but no helpful feedback)

Fastest rejection on a full request I've ever gotten. Adding him to DNQ list

Thank you for sending IMMUNITY HUNTER as requested. I’ve now had a chance to read part of your manuscript, and I’m afraid that it’s not right for me. I hope, though, that one of the other agents considering it falls in love and knows exactly how to sell it. Best of luck, and thank you again for the chance to have read your novel.

Polite check-in: 12/1
David responded on 12/5 stating that he'd read, set aside, and would like a bit longer to consider.

Update: ER 2/12 - David said he liked the changes I'd made (sent an updated version last month) but ultimately didn't fall in love with it.
