"A LENGTHY BUT ENGAGING STORY" Our first full-length review of Measure by Measure was posted on the Blogcritics site yesterday. A lot of writers huff that they don't bother to read their reviews, but we're still so new to this that I couldn't help poring over Blogcritic Robin Kavanagh's take on our baby. Miz K. is by and large positive about the work, though she does note that the overflow of characters can be confusing. Fair enough, though I remain puzzled by her reference to the "antiquated symbols" (like a dial-up modem) which show up in the book. The story's set, after in the mid- to late-nineties.
Was intrigued, however, by the way the writer's review of the book also turned into a reminiscence of her own struggles with size, self-esteem and romance. Clearly, MbM tapped into something personal for her. Not a bad review at all . . .
