Whenever I read a book I don’t like, I go to its Amazon page and read the 5- and 4-star reviews and remind myself that mine is just one opinion in a sea of thousands and to get over myself.
It gives me hope, actually, since it shows that there’s probably a writer out there for everyone. Some writers, sure, will have smaller followings than others. Other writers will have huge fan-tribes. But even those authors will have 1- and 2-star reviews in addition to their dozens of glowing tributes. It’s the ying/yang of reviews, the great equalizer (and humbilizer) for all of us.
