The Anatomy of Book Reviews

From The Millions, an essay by Darryl Campbell titled, Is This Book Bad, or Is It Just Me? The Anatomy of Book Reviews. He’s looking for a little more meanness in book reviews. His introduction:

The book review is dead. At the very least, it’s very obviously dying. Anyway, we can all agree that it should be killed off, because it’s gotten to be irrelevant. If not downright parasitic. (Though maybe it might be salvaged if the average review was a little meaner.)
