Reviewer Quotes

Any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae.
— Kurt Vonnegut

The reviewer is a singularly detested enemy because he is, unlike the hapless artist, invulnerable.
— Carroll O’Connor

The unflattering reviews are painful for short periods of time; the badly written ones are deeply, deeply insulting. That reviewer took no time to really read the book.
— Toni Morrison

Unless a reviewer has the courage to give you unqualified praise, I say ignore the bastard.
— John Steinbeck 

The last one is good advice.
