Reviews and Spoilers: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

By: Jeff Bollow

How is it possible that some reviewers can read and fully digest a 784 page book, and post a thoughtful, well-considered 1,100-word review in a single day?

It's really not as hard as you might think.

First, you start with speed reading. Speed reading is quite common, and with practice it's possible to reach speeds of up to a page every 15 or 20 seconds, which means you could read the seventh book in the Harry Potter series, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" in about 5 hours or so.

And true speed readers are not just skimming and skipping. They're actually absorbing and understanding all the content with full retention.

Then comes the tricky part.

To write the review, it's entirely possible to blast through a 1,100 word review in a matter of hours. When you use something like the FAST System (as explained in"Writing Fast: How to Write Anything with Lightning Speed"), you quickly understand that all you need is a systematic approach to the writing process - and with less practice than you might think, belting out a 1,100-word review in an hour or two becomes a piece of cake.

I think you'd need some practice to get up to reviewing and writing the article in a single day, but, really it's just a matter of practice. And the fact is, the more you write FAST, the faster you'll write.

Put in about a half hour of practice each day, and you'll be speed reading and speed writing at this time next year.
