  “I never read a book before reviewing it; it prejudices a man so.” Sydney Smith  
The things people say
  Section of British Library gate image  
  No book is universally popular. You only have to look at a list of books chosen for any literary prize, plus
the comments made about them, to realise that.
  Reviewing books must therefore be a thankless task as, no matter what you say, there’s always someone who will disagree with you. While we’d like to agree with Iris Murdoch who said that ‘a bad review is even less important than whether it is raining in Patagonia’ – except perhaps to the Patagonians – we can always learn from what other people think about our books.  
  We thought you might like to see what reviewers have written. The following articles are unedited and have been written completely independently of anyone connected with Loaghtan Books.
