When you should/should not read or write reveiws.

primroses 001 When you should and when you should not read or write reviews.

The reviews system evolved during the 1970s and 80s when hordes of British tourists flocked to the south of Spain for cheap package holidays.  Some of the deals were too good to be true – and that was precisely the problem: they were not true.  Families turned up with savings that had taken them all year, cheap though…

Actually, I now live in Shropshire. :) And had fogotten I was in this group, and probably won't revisit it very often though I am working on another security book.

Thanks so much :) Well, actually the series is geared more towards 20+ readers, but I admit as a teen I'd have read it, LOL!

Love your artwork, btw!
