Taking the Chance From Something That Happened: What do you think about Bad Reviews?
So what's up with all this? Are we supposed to write what the writers wanna hear? I believe not. I'm yes for the bad reviews, as long as they have points explained of course. You can't like everything and i don't know why authors get mad. When they are insulting us like "Oftentimes, the people who set up these kinds of blogs have never written a thing in their lives, except maybe a grocery list. ", it's obviously that they just write for the money. I mean when we write a review, even we don't use exceptional words or we have grammar mistakes, it still is what we are thinking. It's our opinion. It's what we will tell to our friends and our families. What exactly do the authors learn from only good reviews? So yeah, people will buy your book but then will not like it even if we told them it's good. They are not stupid.
And from when only people who know how to write, are the ones who can review? We buy the books too, right? What the hell?
I know here, we are sometime harsh with what we write but at least it's the truth. That's why we post reviews on things we don't like as well.
So i'm taking the chance from that and i wanna ask you, what do you think about bad reviews?
I'm not gonna mention neither the blog/s or the author from the situation that appeared. I kinda feel sorry for the author for how unprofessional and childish that was (especially when she changed her post later to cover her mistakes, making it even worse), so i will not do any more damage to her by telling her name. And as for the blog, it always had honest reviews so i don't believe there is something to be said.
