  1. Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
    I read a stinking review the other week that made me shrivel in embarrassment for the author. I read a fairly lengthy excerpt from the book and have no idea what the critic was talking about. She was disparaging, acerbic and quite frankly rude. I checked out her ‘reviewer’ status to find that this was only the second book she had reviewed and in both cases her verdicts had received the ‘not helpful arrow’. There was no indication as to her qualifications to review anything and whilst everyone has a right to their opinion I find it totally unacceptable for self-appointed guardians of the readership to behave in such a fashion. Having said that I have no problem with a balanced and constructive criticism and even for a someone to say that personally they do not like the book. The aim should be to encourage growth and development in a writer not to shatter their confidence all together.
