There’s a lot of talk lately about reviews and how an author goes about getting reviews. Historically, only those who did not have a personal interest in the author gave what was considered a legitimate review. But what about now? Why shouldn’t friends and family review an author’s book?

Victoria Brown and 1060 other people liked Rick's review of The Goldfinch:
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
"I have not read Tartt’s two previous, and by most accounts, superior novels. In The Goldfinch you can see that the talent is there but something is drastically off in the storytelling. The book drags and drags. It exasperates with unnecessary deta..." Read more of this review »
Victoria Brown and 2106 other people liked Jennie Menke's review of The Goldfinch:
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
"Audible. OH MY GAWD! Who ARE you people giving this 5 star raves? I'm not even half way yet and I'm wondering if I will be able to weather this ridiculously long book that keeps getting sidetracked by just about every teenage pothole you can think..." Read more of this review »

Red Sparrow is one of the best spy novels I've read in a very long time. There's no question that Matthews lived the life--it's evident on every page of the book. The intricate plot is riveting, and you can tell he put great thought into every scene. ...more
