Well, lots of Interwebs talk about reviews.
Let's start with the Salon piece...
And then the New York Times article.
Which got link reposted by Do Some Damage, with more discussion.
These all bring up the new big questions about reviews. How much to believe them?
My writing group got to talking about it last night. I said I didn't post really bad reviews, that if I hate a book, I'll just ignore it. Someone else suggested that we have an obligation to post the bad reviews, to do our part as professional writers to weed out the bad books.
What do you think? Should we call out the crap in strong language? Or just ket the junk sink on its own?
