The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair comes with some fanfare: translated into 32 languages; 2m copies sold in a year; winner of three French literary prizes; trailing comparisons to Roth , Franzen and Bellow. A reviewer should ignore all this, of course — even when the book under discussion includes an acidic commentary on publishing hype — but I must mention it out of fairness. So many critics seem to have been knocked on their behinds by Dicker's novel that I can't be sure I'm not missing something in filing what you might call a minority report. They see a masterpiece; I see a completely ordinary, amiably cartoonish and well aerated page-turner that does nothing interesting in literary terms at all. The protagonist of Dicker's novel is Marcus Goldman, a shallow, handsome, praise-hungry young man whose first novel made him rich and famous. He dated an actor, swanked around at New York parties and revelled in his celebrity.

People who judge a show when 'watching a bit' or after just one episode are pathetic and should not waste their time writing useless and utterly stupid reviews if they can't be bothered to watch the whole thing. In my opinion. I can't wait too see how it all ends.
