Salesperson: I’ll give you a copy if you promise to review it.
Martin: What if I don’t like it?

Salesperson: That’s fine. Bad publicity is better than no publicity at all.
Martin: When I don’t like a book, I prefer not to talk about it.

Salesperson: You can say whatever you’d like about this one, really. It’s okay.
Martin: In fact, bad books can turn me into a monster.

Martin: Don’t tell anyone, but sometimes, when I don’t like a book, I won’t even finish it.

    Hey, a relatable comic. I do still review books that I don’t finish, but I write at the top “I didn’t get more than 19% through this book” or whatever. Sometimes, though, I hate a book so much that I write a ‘Not a review’ where I just vent. I don’t put those on Amazon, though.

    I reserve 1-star reviews for “book was so bad I could not finish it,” on Goodreads. I think I have fewer than five of these, however. I’m clearly more tenacious than Martin.
