Michelle Kerns has read my mind. In her blog for the Examiner, Michelle points out a literary epidemic–the dull and clichéd book review. I agree with Michelle that there is nothing worse than reading a review where the words “compelling,” “tour de force,” and “readable” are used to describe a literary work. Readable? Really?!
So, in order to draw attention to those book review offenders, she invented a new game: Book Review Bingo!
If you go ahead and play this, beware! You’ll be surprised as to how fast you shout “Bingo!” with the reading of a couple of book reviews. It only took me three! Did anyone beat me? And which riveting and timely cliché is your (least) favorite?
