"...You become totally immersed in the lives of the characters..."
"Prepare yourself to laugh..."
"I am at 43% (I am reading on my Kindle) and I am about to give up."
"...Great plot good book and if u want me to spoil it for u just let me know." (How very public spirited of you.)
"Not my favorite but also not my least favorite." (Arguably, the same could be applied by the author to the review.)
When you factor in the fact that some reviews are based upon review copies, the only true measure of a book's commercial success is book sales. I wonder how the metrics would look if freebie downloads and their reviews were featured separately?
The more I look into it, the more I gravitate towards the opinion that none of this really matters. However, if the ebook publisher takes me and my thrillers on, rest assured I'll be back here in search of reviews quicker than you can say paraprosdokian.
Wish me luck...and tell me about the best and worst reviews you've ever received.
