Cracking the reviewer's code

Ever wonder what a reviewer really means? One prolific review reader and writer has cracked the code.

For example, she says:
"The tone is dark" = The detective is an alcoholic and the body count will be high.
"The scientific details are complex" = Only PhD's need apply.
"The dialogue is lively" = The characters swear like they're in a Judd Apatow movie.

Here are the rest of her observations.
