The truth, the whole truth and...reviews

I've just read the great reviews of my friend Michael Malone's new crime novel, Blood Tears, (available from Five Leaves now) and he deserves every single one of them - great stuff, Michael!

Needless to say, it made me think of my own  - using the term 'review' very loosely to mean any feedback I've ever had - and I've decided I can certainly outdo him in one clear category...

Consider my top five from the 'damning with faint praise' school of thought:


1      'The main character is just an interesting version of you, isn't she?'

2      'I had an Amazon voucher with £4 left on it.  I had to put 11p to it to buy your book for my Kindle.  It was well worth the 11p.'

3        'I couldn't get to the library that week but (a colleague) had a copy she'd got at your book launch so I read that instead of a proper book.'

4        'I did like your book.  I know an excellent proof-reader you could use for the next one.'

5        'I wish Christine* had written it.  That would have been really good.'


Mr Malone, over to you...

(Christine 'starred' in A Blonde Bengali Wife as one of my travel companions.  To be fair she would, indeed, have written a really good book.)
