Reviewing Style

I review because I love to read Fantasy and Sci-Fi.  I have a set format to my review style:

  • I break my review down into synopses, likes, dislikes, thoughts and conclusion.
  • I score the book out of 10.
  • I DO NOT read any other reviews of the book prior to my own.
  • I will always try to write my own synopses, I believe it adds a personal element to the review.
  • I will be honest, both about the story and my own understanding of the book.

Words have power over the reader and the author.  I believe it is important to remember that we each take a piece of ourselves into the books we read.  We are individuals, with our own thoughts, views and perspectives and in the end what you take from a story is not just the author’s responsibility.
