Reviewing as drudgery

About the only thing that needs be said about this, is that the piece is about as dull and stodgy as the kind of reviewing its author envisions as an ideal.

He may the kind of reader that gets intrigued by the passionless, ego-less, turn-your-head-and-cough-type review, but I believe – I hope – he is in the minority.

Book reviewing and book chat is imperilled as it is – one thing we don't need is to dull it all down a little.
