Welcome to ‘The Written Word’.
This is my book review site.
There are many book review blogs and websites on the internet, so why have I decided to add to this epic pile of opinion based information? Here are my three main reasons:
- In order to spare my poor family and boyfriend the trauma of me painstakingly recounting what I’ve read and why it was good/bad or indifferent. Instead, the anonymous internet is the repository. Basically, I’m draining the opinions out of myself so that I feel like ‘someone has listened’ and I can move on. Immature, yet practical.
- To satisfy my subconscious egotistical belief that my opinion on a book is worth reading
- (The only selfless reason) I started collecting comics and art books. I quickly discovered that critical information is extremely hard to find. Given that I purchase mostly off the internet, I’m usually taking a gamble on whether the item will be as good as it appears. Hopefully this blog may help others make well informed purchases.
Now that I’ve got that out of the way, please have a look at Notes On Reviewing if you’d like to know more details on my scoring system.
Also, feel free to comment after my reviews; where you agree, disagree, to generally discuss or ask questions.
