Today I’m supposed to be publishing a review of one of the books on my shortlist. It’s not going to happen.
The book that I picked to read was just so dire that it would result in a 1-star or no-star rating and a review that was more of a vicious rant. I had decided that I would stay true to my own opinions in this post series and not fabricate positive remarks just to save people’s feelings, but I never expected to have so little good to say about a book.
This week I’ll be adhering to the saying “If you can’t say anything nice, then say nothing at all.”
I did try and swap to another book on the shortlist (Physics for Poets – much better written, lack of pace in the story) so I could bring you a review of that, but time was not on my side and I haven’t yet finished reading it.
Normal service will be resumed next week.
