Daily they pour out their bile, believing that what they say about a specific book actually matters. There are some who would argue that a troll’s review shows an opposite view, and therefore offers potential readers a balanced set of opinions.
Recognised literary critics offer an alternative, usually balanced views. Trolls do not.
Given the fact that a vocal minority have seen fit to vent their spleen over my best selling adventure novel “The Seventh Age” yet again, in this particular instance by delivering a positively venomous attack, if you are one of that tiny intellectually challenged minority who thinks it was boring and badly written, then my latest story will probably not appeal to your childish minds either. In which case, perhaps you should stick to colouring in books, reading comics and children’s stories.
Maybe the time has finally arrived where publishers using the internet to display their wares, should reconsider allowing the general public the privilege of reviewing books without any form of censorship.
