JOHN MEANEY

4.3.11

REVIEWED AGAIN...

Another nice Point review over at BiblioBuffet, which also nicely analyses the role of a reviewer and how personal taste and expertise intersect with responsible analysis. The reviewer is Australian writer Gillian Pollack, and the bibliographic description includes this: "She is the proud owner of some very pretty fans." But it doesn't mention which con she acquired them at...

She also writes: I absolutely don’t want to live in the world Blackthorne has created. I didn’t want to in Edge (the first book in the series) and I most certainly don’t want to now. I do, however, want to read about it. It’s relentless and gripping, with a brilliant balance between the personal and the political. She is clearly insightful and vastly intelligent, and her hobbies are her own affair.
