The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed out of the Window and Disappeared

I’ve just finished this book by Jonas Jonasson, and I liked it. I thought the ending was a little weak – in fact, from around two-thirds of the way through, it kind of collapsed towards the last page – but I still liked it. If you haven’t already bought it, my advice is, risk 20p (31c) in the Kindle store.

So, having finished the book, and having bought it as a Kindle eBook from Amazon,  I was about to review it, when I noticed that it already had 1,759 reviews…

I mean – what’s the point?

Who’s life is so incredibly dull that they would wade through 1,759 reviews in order to read a witty, incisive penetrating review by good old JB?

Now I am aware (as I am sure you are) of the old philosophical question: if a tree falls in the forest; if no one is there to hear it; does it make a noise? Well, in the world of ePublishing (where there are no trees – only bytes) I’m led to ask:  if a review is written; if no one ever reads it… does it really exist?

Discuss…
