Following Steps are important for Book Reviews
Book reviews are intended to equip prospective book buyers with the information they need to make an informed decision about a particular book. A great book review not only describes the book, it skillfully evaluates and analyzes it. It assesses the goal or promise of a book and appraises how successful the book is at accomplishing the goal or fulfilling the promise. It’s also an expression of your opinion of the project—an opinion supported with evidence from the reviewed book.
Here are some important steps you can take to write a great book review:
1: The subject, scope,and type of Book
a. Identify the book by author and title.
b.Specify the type of book, such as fiction, nonfiction, biography, or autobiography.
c. Mention the book’s theme.
d. Some times you will need to include background to enable readers to place the book into a specific context. For example, you might want to describe the general problem the book addresses and how it provides solutions.
2: Before you read the book, evaluate the title, cover, back-cover copy or online summary. What do you expect from the book based on these items? What is the book’s promise to you? The author’s thesis or premise? Do you agree or disagree with the thesis of the book (nonfiction)? Are you intrigued by the story question (fiction)?
3: Read the entire book before reviewing it. This may seem obvious, but I’ve read reviews of books, I’m sure the reviewer never bothered to read.
4: As you read, highlight passages that strongly support the book’s premise. Also mark phrases that challenge, encourage, exhort, entertain or teach you. You can pull quotes to include in your review. If you’re reviewing fiction, highlight descriptions or dialogue that provide a taste of the author’s writing.
5: Note the author’s voice, style. Who is the intended audience?
6: Write a great hook for your review, setting the tone for your readers.
7: Write your review, including the following:
a. How the book affected you.
b. Explain how the author achieved the effects.
c. Summarize the book.
d. Weigh in with your opinion. Why would you recommend (or not recommend) this book? Give specific examples to back up your opinion.
e. Compare/contrast this book with others in its category, if possible. (For instance, if you’ve read several books on this topic or in this genre.)
f. What if anything has the book left out?
g. What personal experiences have you had related to the subject or theme?
8: After writing your review, carefully proofread it for inaccuracies, typos and errors. Be sure you have the correct title, author, publisher included.
9: Be honest about your review
a. Throughout your book review, it’s important to remain honest. This is especially true for blogs because your readers trust what you have to say.
b. Don’t lead readers astray by telling them you loved a book when you really couldn’t stand it. Keep in mind that the author and publisher will most likely be reading your review.
c. Remember that online reviews are often archived permanently.
