What are you talking about? Who gives these reviews, and where? I can't believe you've never seen a bad review of a novel, or a good review of a movie. You must live a very limited life. I don't understand what you mean by "When I start skimming a novel, all I read is praise" - WHERE do you read this "praise"? IN the novel? Surely not? And please don't use all capital letters. On the Internet this is the equivalent of shouting.

Don't know but I do agree with you comments. It always amazes me that just about every novel you see in a bookshop is a " Best Seller" or at least is written by a "best selling" author. They can't all be that good !

Novels are something you imagine as you read it.The characters and environment changes from people to people as to their imagination. Movies are what you see and feel according to the scenes presented to you..etc

Everyone who regularly reviews books gets more books than he or she could possibly read or review. And many of them are bad. Many are tossed into the recycle pile after a few pages. While it can be fun to pan a really horrible book, generally there are better, more important books that deserve attention. There is really not much point in kicking something that is really pitiful around. So not that many thoroughly bad reviews get into print. If it gets reviewed at all a book is likely to have some good points, so it is possible to cherry pick just about any review to find something good said about the book. These cherry-picked parts are called blurbs -- and yeah, publishers use blurbs to try to sell books.
