Should anyone be allowed to review books?

SFSignal have had a rather entertaining run in with an author whose story they have reviewed. The author in question, on her blog, says...

"But it still pisses me off when I see people who obviously cannot master anything beyond the simplest narratives being allowed to review books right out in public where anyone can stumble across this crap."


Perhaps she would like a global interweb SF reviewing test to be incorporated to ensure that any bloggers attempting to review are of sufficient "quality" to meet her requirements?

Question 1: Are you comfortable reading complicated, non-linear naratives.
