Writing a review, focus on why others can love the book; on the characters, artwork, turns of the plot, message; tell if you hang on every word and if it has made a difference for you; write a review heartfelt and sincere, full of insight if it's possible.
The positive informations tell the readers if they are interested in the book or not.
Answer the questions:
- what makes this book different from all others?
- Why should anyone care?
- What is unique in this book?
Report facts accurately; write conversionally and not in reviewese; criticize the book, not the author; never review a book of a friend or an enemy; purge your work of anythin that you wouldn't say to your smartest friend.
Say what you alone can say about the book.
