SYNDICATE PRODUCT #24, $3, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 24 pgs.

If you’ve ever read a book that was so awful you couldn’t help but tell your friends all about it, then this zine will be right up your alley. This multi-contributor zine features negative reviews, or “cultural criticism” of books that disappointed or infuriated their readers. Honestly it was a delight. Reading reviews that are so brutally honest about popular publications brought me a lot of joy. The really appealing part is that all of the reviews explain in detail just what was so upsetting or angering in the books. From their topics, to the pacing of the writing, there’s something for everyone to hate on! Highly recommended if you’re an avid reader or enjoy the negative reviews from Goodreads. –Tricia Ramos (Syndicate Product, c/o Michel PO Box 877, Lansdowne, PA 19050, synprod.etsy.com)
