Real-Time Reviewing

Did I invent this type of reviewing? (Based on a forty year study of Wimsatt's 'The Intentional Fallacy' and the actual reading of fiction texts with both enjoyment and rigorousness...)

Self-doubt creeps in, just as easily as extraneity creeps in.

Neil Williamson, I think, first called them 'Real-Time Reviews'. Some have also called them 'stream-of conscious' reviews. Others, perhaps with an intentionally(?) pejorative purpose, have called them 'interactive' reviews. They have not yet become fully interactive because most authors have taught themselves to be reticent about reactions to reviews. Which is a shame, as my view (in tune with Wimsatt) is that each reader owns a fiction text, and the author, once the text is posited in the audience arena, is just another reader, equally empowered to comment upon the text he or she once created.

A few authors I've real-time reviewed have not commented at all, either to me personally or publicly.

Many of the authors have commented on the real-time reviews that I've given their books and I quote them here: http://weirdmonger.blog-city.com/rec...oks_by_dfl.htm

Re: Real-Time Reviewing

Thanks to Roy for pointing it out, but it looks as if I've started a trend. Here's a real-time review on the new Dan Brown from the Guardian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/booksblog/2009/sep/15/lost-symbol-live-reading-dan-brown

Re: Real-Time Reviewing

Thanks for the thanks.

Sometimes some reviews take longer than I expected, others shorter, but I try to post the next part of any real-time review when I sense it is synchronously appropriate - for the benefit of the book being reviewed and for the reviewer (the 'me' at that moment) - even if that means, in hindsight, disproportionate timing and slicing of the review out of sequence with others.

Re: Real-Time Reviewing

I expect that how quickly you post the reviews is some indication of how quickly you're reading the book. Isn't that what the real-time bit is about? Or am I confused?

Re: Real-Time Reviewing

The three most recent of my Real-Time Reviews have created the most challlenge I’ve ever had in such an approach, each for different reasons.

Real-Time Reviewing as a ‘work-in-progress’ view of static art.
