I occasionally post reviews of books and other media here, but I am not a professional critic: I don’t have any critical theories that I measure these products against, nor am I paid to review particular producst. Basically, I know what I like and like to say why I like it.

In other words, if I post a review here it’s likely to be positive because I’m only generally interested in writing about things I enjoy. I try to be honest in my opinions and to mention things about a story which I find difficult or off-putting, but basically you won’t find many negative assessments here*.

Take my reviews as recommendations of things that I like, and if the reasons I like these things are similar to reasons that you enjoy things that you like then maybe you will like the things I write about too.
