Here’s a lesson that keeps coming back to me.
Don’t criticize a book …
just because it has speling erors
or bizarre. Punctuation!
or uses similes like they’re going out of style
or has as many clichés per page as there are grains of sand on a beach
or uses adverbs obsessively excessively obnoxiously
or, the, sentences, are, choppy
or you just couldn’t get into it.
Not every book is for every person. Just because I don’t love a particular book, doesn’t mean someone else won’t.
I'll try to remember that the next time I read a sucky review of Miss Fortune Cookie. (And I'll try not to let the good reviews swell my head, either.)
