Yeah, well done, peeps. Nice blog, Shimbo.
How can I say this with all respect to the people who have written the acceptable and the professional people who have accepted? I've read the feeds and synopsi, and they are inane. My opinion would be even more inane if I were not judging it against the good books I have read (classics mostly) and not my own. I greatly appreciate what I have learned from ywo reviews, and have stumbled on the 1% of brilliant I would publish if I could; but none of this here inspires me to even check it out. Am I at the wrong airport?
Definitely at the wrong airport, possibly the wrong planet. Amusing though. Inane in every respect - your comment that is. Perhaps reading classics has rendered you senseless. If book shelves only contained classics they would be sparsely occupied and the world of reading a poorer place, and the number of writers enjoying plying their craft, no matter their skills, would be greatly reduced.
Variety is the spice of life. Try and embrace it, rather than make inane remarks at the work of others.
