Are DNF reviews really all that helpful?

This post is full of some hard truths.

When I became and author I made the decision to not leave “Did Not Finish” reviews, and will not currently leave anything less than 3 stars. Yes, reading is subjective, and not everyone will love your story, but the problem I see with DNF reviews is that a reader didn’t actually read through your whole book. Should they post about something they don’t know? That’s the question today.

As a writer, you’re going to catch a reviewer on a day that’s not–how shall I say it– good, and sometimes low stars and DNF reviews happen because a scapegoat is needed, and sometimes, you are the projection of their bad day.

I really enjoyed the first book in the Inspector Stone series (Where There’s a Will), but this book took things to a whole new level. We get to experience so much more of DI Stone outside his police work. Eye For an Eye allows readers to get to know Nathan as a family man, introducing us to both his wife and two lovely children. The balancing act of police inspector and family life was well portrayed.
