So Bad, I Read It For You.
(It’s a clumsy acronym, but whatever.)
These “reviews” are for when you want to know what happens, but you know the book’s a mess.
E.g., Dan Brown’s Inferno. I knew Brown was sliding downhill when The Lost Symbol turned into a parody of his earlier stuff, but he put Dante on the cover so I had to know what happened. It was bad, so bad. How could I not try to save others this experience?
These spoiler-laden reviews are sarcastic. They’re meant to be the funny-ha-ha sort of sarcastic. (I clarify this for the people who find sarcasm fundamentally cruel.) For this reason, the SBIRIFY category will be populated by big, blockbuster books/authors: Dan Brown, Stephenie Meyer, Nicholas Sparks… they’re rolling in mad $$$$$ with millions of copies sold. I don’t want to make a punching bag from a self-publisher’s first attempt.
If there’s a book you’d like to see here: feel free to make a request. ^_^
