Latest review

First review round: 39.0 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

Three months after I submitted the article, I emailed the editor. They said they had trouble finding the reviewers. As a result of 9 months, I received two peer reviews and the result is reject. I'm very upset because one of the review was 3 sentences. The other reviewer's opinion is whether the article was suitable for the journal. I think this should be the editor's decision. This reviewer offered me another journal. I don't think the referee process is going well.
