The most scathing reviews ever

The Guardian had this piece the other day about particularly vicious book reviews. They're good, but I think my favourite is the one mentioned in the comments, When Saturday Comes' review of Tim Lovejoy's book.

The 2 most scathing contemporary reviews that stick in my mind are by Charlie Baylis at Stride (so short and dismissive that you could miss it) and Fergus McFadden at bowwow shop (so long that you wonder where the motivation came from)

Thanks Tim - I'd read the Stride one before, such as it is, but I'd not come across the other one.
