Q: Have you ever bought a book BECAUSE of a bad review?
Actually, I like to do that sometimes, just to see if I have the same opinion. I have had a couple of times where I end up loving the book, so I keep doing it. A bad review makes me wonder about the book. There are a couple of ‘rules’ I have set up for myself, because I want to buy books I know I’m going to love.
If there are a lot of bad reviews, and I do some research for it, I probably won’t give it a try. It also depends on the reasons someone disliked the book. For example: If the characters are ignorant and dull with zero personality, I’m not going to buy it. That’s one thing I hate so much about a book. But if it’s based on the writing style, I don’t mind to try it :) That’s just something personal.
Sometimes when a book is popular and it get’s bad reviews, I want to see why certain people love it. Like ‘Twilight.’ I absolutely hate those books and I’m still stuck in the third. I want to read them, so I can really tell my opinion about it. The only thing I’m very glad about is that I bought them in a cheap bookstore :p
