Andrea K Höst: Books, with a Side-order of Rambling
That's a great review (one which confirms that I have some way to go in learning the art...). I hope it leads to some more attention for the book. And not just from the people that are drawn to *that* tag... :)
Writing reviews is a real skill - and one I unfortunately don't possess. I often think about reviews while I'm reading a book, but when I get to the end it's very rare that I can say anything coherent about the experience.
Same here. Usually the best I can do is call out one or two really memorable bits and then mutter something vaguely comprehensible about the vibe.Next time I do one I must test my new theory that one or two killer quotes or a short passage of prose is probably going to articulate my impressions much better than I can.
