book reviews

Book reviews of one's work can be tricky. There are those that say any publicity is good publicity. There are those that can't read reviews of their work. Certainly reader reviews such as on Amazon have made everyone a critic. I'm not sure if this is good or bad.

As writers, however, we should know how to write a good book review. The Los Angeles Review of Books is an example of how we should do it. See, for example, their article(s) on Kim Stanley Robinson's California trilogy: Pacific Overture. Interesting!

How about you? Do you read your own reviews? Do you write reviews?
