The Weirdonomicon and other reviewing point

I have now completed my re-appraisal of my original real-time review of the Reva-Menders’ massive WEIRDONOMICON (as I’ve christened it) HERE, and hence signed off the whole real-time reality-perspective of this endeavour on my part.

————————–

Quite separately, this is my general ‘nutshell’ view on reviewing fiction books that I posted yesterday on the interesting thread HERE:

“I think reviews divide into 3
(1) those that curve as far as possible to the positive to encourage reading in general (a la John Updike’s reviewing rules).
(2) Those that are negative.
(3) Those that are mocking or tendentious.

With (3), I suggest the review is not made at all or given to another reviewer.”
