Books these days seem to be covered in spiel. Things such as "This book will change your life' or "I couldn't put it down" decorate almost all the books you see. For the most part however, these little blurbs are far from the reality.
Sick of the hyperbole my bookgroup has set up 'A Riotous Oil-Painting'. A blog dedicated to giving you the lowdown on what the reviewer really should have said.
So if you like books (or simply hate reviewers) and have ever been lured into purchasing by the promise of "A riotous oil-painting of senility, lust and greed", only to find a faded watercolour then mosey on over to the blog.
It's very much a work in progress at the moment so bear with us!
