I guess maybe reviewing this review is kind of clever. I mean how many people have ever reviewed their own review as they were writing their review?
Well, maybe it’s not that clever, since I could have written about anything in the entire world, and I chose to write about the thing that I’m writing. Which might be kind of obvious. It’s almost like I just decided to write about the last word I thought about when I thought, “Hey, I’m writing a review.” No further thinking required, just - boom, “Review? Sure, I’ll write a review on the review I’m writing! Why not?”
But, I mean, it’s definitely a little clever. It’s not something you see every day. To think of reviewing your own review is maybe so obvious that it’s not obvious at all. Just because it’s the last word that you think of when you think to yourself that you should write a review doesn’t preclude it from being reviewable. I mean, I thought of a lot of things to review before settling on reviewing this review.
And how do you review a review that’s reviewing the fact that it’s reviewing itself? That doesn’t sound too easy. But something that’s hard to review wouldn’t automatically lend itself to a good review. I mean, I could completely fail at writing a review about something that’s hard to review, which makes sense, because it’s hard to review.
But is reviewing this review even really a hard review?
