Here is a guideline that you can use for writing an objective review.
- What is the author’s main point or plot?
- How successful do you think the author was in carrying out the purpose of the publication?
- How well does the author write? You can use a brief quotation to illustrate your observations.
- Who is the book for? (general reader, genre interest, specialized audience, age range, orientation, etc.)
- Your personal experiences that relate to the topic. Your personal opinion. Your favorite part or what you learned.
- Your recommendation. This could pertain to editing issues, future publications, or story line.
- The conclusion ties together the review and provides a comment. This is usually the part that is used for an excerpt of the review.
- Be creative! Give your own honest and fair opinion. Be candid. Authors love the personal flair that you give the review.
- Never copy and paste a synopsis into any review. Always use your own words.
