Savage

n. 1. A primitive or uncivilized person. 2. A brutal, fierce, or vicious person. 3. A rude person; a boor.

tr.v. 1. To assault ferociously. 2. To attack without restraint or pity.

The most popular books are often savaged by critics for their writing style, yet these writers are clearly connecting with readers.
