So started reading the NYT review for Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch but couldn't finish reading the review because my inner child screamed "Don't tell me the story before I get the chance to read it for myself".
Does it work that way for you too?
I know it's childish, it's naïve but still.
How do you treat book reviews? Do you read them or shy away from them? After reading the review don't you feel you know too much to fully enjoy the book?
