I read an interesting blog this morning about DNF reviews and I was wondering how you felt.
I have a lot of books in my DNF pile. There's that Song of Scarab.... you know, the science fiction one that got great reviews and you loved. I couldn't get very far with it. And a few others that I just hated the voice of shortly after beginning.
I don't think it's important that I slog through a book to see if it gets better. But do I have an obligation to keep my comments to myself if I haven't finished it?
We agreed not to do reviews on this blog but we'll happily share our mad love of books and authors. Loretta Chase, I'm talking about you when I say mad love. I want to have your babies ma'am, and wash your dishes and be your cabana boy. Mad love.
I have comented on Goodreads though about my DNFs. But to me Goodreads is well, I don't know. A social book shelf.
If you haven't read to the end then maybe you miss the author redeeming a character or a situation. Is it fair to do a review of something you haven't finished because you basically don't know the whole story?
