Getting reviewed in the San Francisco Chronicle is, in my opinion, a big fucking deal. San Francisco is a HUGE book town. They even have an event called "LitQuake" that brings thousands of people to the streets of the Mission district for a marathon session of author interviews and readings. It’s like a Lollapalooza for books.
So when my Google alert (read also: one of my many vanity searches) popped up this morning with a review by the Chron, I was excited and nervous to open it up. Reviewer Michael Berry clearly did not like INFECTED, but he gave it a fair shake and didn’t beat it up too bad. The review reads like I’m a first-grader who don’t spell so good, but he tries hard so the teacher gives him a silver star (but no smiley face, those are reserved for the smart kids).
Unlike most reviews, this one is open for comments, so feel free to swing over there and leave your feedback.
