So I’ve given some thought to how I want to review books.
How about an analogue to the music criticism show, Sound Opinions?
To keep it simple, I’m thinking three levels of review:
- Face-melting bong hits to the brain: Excellent, worth a reread, will change your fucking life.
- A bowl and a read: Quality reading material, a solid choice for your stoned reading experience.
- Schwag: Not worth burning.
My guess is that most of my reviews will fall in the middle, as they should. I generally don’t like to trash other people’s work, given how close to my heart I hold my own writing.
I’m always ears if people find my reviews are less than useful.
