I wouldn't know. I haven't read any of my reviews in over 3 years.

But what I've found, back when I still naively read reviews, that readers come in all shapes and sizes, and authors who take reviews seriously are doomed for a life of Kboard tears.

I guess the most interesting so far was a review that essentially was an answer to a review that had been fairly negative. I did not rise to my own defense since 1) Stupid, and 2) The guy had a right to his opinion. But someone else who read my book disagreed and made a point of posting a review refuting the other reviewer's negative comments! I'm like, "What? Okay..."

I would caution everyone to consider carefully about relating 'interesting' reviews. While I'm sure the motivation for the thread is curiosity only, be aware that discussing reviews -- even anonymously -- is not always the best choice. Readers DO browse this forum, and, comments about reviews by authors can be seen negatively . . . . even if the poster intends to express nothing more than mild amusement or simple observations. What you have to remember is that discussions here are not PRIVATE conversations with close, trusted friends -- it's completely public and searchable by ANYONE.

So. Not saying don't post. Just saying consider carefully before doing so.

I don't read reviews. They are readers opinions left for other readers, not me.

I think it's bad form to discuss reviews and reviewers in a public forum.
