Another quick post…
So I have this pet peeve. And some of you might be guilty of this, but that’s fine. I’ll give my opinion anyhow and I’m sure others will give theirs.
To be quite honest, a person’s opinion of a book that they’ve never read…is pointless to me. Just because they’ve read a review of a book does not mean that that review is the ultimate opinion. And frankly, I don’t believe that anyone can form a valid opinion unless they actually read a book from cover to cover. In this way, books are like people. Never make assumptions based solely on what you’ve heard, because unless it comes straight from the horse’s mouth (or from the pages) you will never know what’s on the inside.
Can you give your opinion on a book that you haven’t read? Yes, but that doesn’t make it a review. You can talk about why you DNF’d and why you’ll never finish. You can talk about why you’ll never even pick it up to begin with but…. it still isn’t a review.
