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 *** 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.
