Is your book like a warm teapot?

Here’s a review Katherine Mansfield wrote of E. M. Forster in 1917 that is very clever but not exactly the kind I’m hoping for on MY books – had to share:

“Forster never gets any further than warming the teapot. He’s a rare fine hand at that. Feel this teapot. Is it not beautifully warm? Yes, but there ain’t going to be no tea.”

This according to TIME magazine.
