I have never been anal about technicalities. The important thing is how I feel during and after reading a book. Factor in my mood and then my rating is decided. This is how simple I like to review a book (well, I didn’t say I was the Roger Ebert of book reviews).
My Rating System:
5 Stars – I am hopelessly in love with the book!
4 Stars – I loved the book but there were just a couple of things that put me off.
3 Stars – The book was okay but it wasn’t all that memorable.
2 Stars – I liked the concept but it fell way short of my expectations.
1 Star – I struggled to finish the book.
Basically, if it has a happy ending, I’ll probably be in love with it anyway no matter the trivial details.
