Giving Bad Reviews

giving-badHow do you feel about giving bad reviews?

I feel almost guilty when I write a bad review.

If you look through my reviews you’ll notice that the reviews with lower ratings tend to be longer than those with high ratings. It always seems that it’s easier to say a lot about books you didn’t enjoy than those you loved.

Whenever I write a bad review I try to include a couple positive points as well. I don’t want the entire review to be negative.

  1. I always find it difficult – especially since I rarely find a book that I hate completely. I usually just find parts that I think could be better, so explaining all of it means its usually a bit longer. Except in the case of the Alchemist – I hated it so much my review was about 12 words long!
