Some comments on your reviewing style

I must say, I like your style of reviewing. I'm the kind of guy who likes to sit down with friends and discuss books that we've read, movies that we've seen, and I always have the feeling that you'd fit right in at one of these kaffeklatschen (man, I hope I at least came close to spelling that right). To me, a review is, and should be, all about content. If you tell me whether or not you liked a story, and why, then really, what the hell more do I need? And, frankly, I'd rather read literary criticism (or genre criticism) that keeps my interest--and I find that the conversational tone is one way of keeping my interest--than force myself to read a critique that reads like it should have the word "Treatise" in the title.

And that's my 2¢.
