    Hi Ryan,

    Possibly in the fact that it somewhat feels like a sterilising process. I’d (not always but usually) lean toward avoiding the reviews until after so as to understand my own response to the book or my own response to a good piece of literature etc. regardless of my complete/incomplete understanding. If that makes any sense. I guess it comes down to why (and what) you’re reading that particular book.

    cheers
    Bec

    Better yet…don’t read a Dostoevsky ever – whoever he is – and just watch more movies!
    Just so you know bec, I do plan to read something…sometime…that’s not a text book or a screenplay.
