I often see reviews criticised for being too short or too long. But is there a perfect length, and if so why? Some items don't require an in-depth review. You just want to know if they work or not. Batteries are a prime example. Other products, such as books, need a breakdown of the content itself. But are there golden rules that all good reviews adhere to, by their very nature? Some are fairly obvious.
1. The review must tell people about the product it is describing.
2. The review must not advertise anything else.
But what about other factors? Does length matter? Is humour appropriate?
What do people think?
