    This is quite interesting. I think that most people, outside of academe, have stopped listening to “expert” reviewers. If you like Zombie Apocalypse movies and the New York Times reviewer thinks that they are a waste of time, then you will no doubt be more interested in what other people who like zombie movies think. With social media and other sites where anyone can post, we are no longer hostage to the whims and tastes of a few media outlets in New York. A zombie movie on Amazon Prime Video with mostly positive reviews is one that the zombie enthusiast will probably enjoy. This doesn’t apply to academic monographs, of course, where subject experts are still the arbiters of what constitutes good work…
