I thought I'd say something about my reviews again. It's nothing I haven't said before, but it's worth repeating. Most of my reviews are positive, and there's a reason for that: I don't review every book I read. I'm bringing this up, in fact, because of a book I'm not reviewing. It's by a best-selling author, and I'm sure it's sold zillions of copies. I read it, but I didn't like it. It's all action, all the time, and there's nothing wrong with that, but the writing , well, . . it just didn't work for me. Obviously I'm in the minority here, however, so why should I slam a writer who no doubt worked long and hard to become a hit and who no doubt also worked long and hard to write the book? I'd rather spend my time talking about books I really liked. So that's what I'll continue to do. You can find all the bad reviews you want on Amazon if you're so inclined. Just look around.
