RE: RARA-AVIS: Re: reviews (was: Introduction)

I would have to agree with what Jim Winter said regarding reviews. I have read too many reviews that seem to be tailored to the reviewers taste rather than an honest critique of the book. That said, sometimes it is hard not to be somewhat subjective when reviewing, especially if the book is poorly written.

 Jim Said> A reviewer's primary responsibility is to the reader, not the writer, not the publisher. That's not the same as doing a hatchet job on a book because you want to show how cool you are. Jim Winter
