  1. Putting my reader's hat on, I quite like reading the "not so great" reviews, those that tell you which bits worked for them and which didn't, because that's just their personal taste and needn't necessarily conform to your own - each to their own as they say! Sometimes I think they help more than a wholly uncritical review as they focus my mind on what sort of things work for me - in highlighting what doesn't work for them, they can highlight something that does 'do it' for me - if that makes any sense?! And "characters.. well-sketched" makes me think I need to bump your book up my waiting list and read it soon!

  3. Beware journalists doing book reviews! As jealous and prickly as a woman, of her fellow women, at a cocktail party ;) Good luck David.
