And Furthermore, Don't Even Think About Insulting The Author Whose Books You Are Reviewing...

...for a smack in the face often offends!

A good reviewer will weigh up the positives versus the negatives but won't go round calling the book 'bad' just because they don't like it, nor will they comment on things like grammar, especially if they live in another country where phrasing is different. If there was anything wrong with the grammar in Big Brother believe me it would have been picked up by someone more qualified than the deranged nutter who reviewed it - the editor, love! - and anyway who sets great store by formal grammar in a contemporary book? No one. If you want formal grammar go and read a Jane Austen!

Suffice to say I won't be featuring that particular review on my site!
