First review round: 22.3 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

It took 5 months for the review to be completed. At the end I received 5 short paragraphs in all from 2 reviewers, of which 2 paragraphs contained the summaries of the manuscript written by the reviewers. In the remaining 3 short paragraphs, it seemed that the reviewers missed the main thrust of the paper and directed their criticism at secondary aspects. Although this criticism was fair, and was addressed in a version submitted later, I do not believe that it needed 5 months of review, which wasted significant time. As I asked for an update at around 4.5 months after submission, I am not sure if the review would have taken longer had I not asked.
