Anatomy of a Book Review

What to include...

After your analysis, you should make a recommendation.  Specifics are important. Recommending a book enthusiastically to everyone does not take into account audience age or differences.  For positive reviews, consider

  • what age groups are most likely to enjoy the book?
  • are there readers who have enjoyed other titles that would also enjoy this title?
  • can and will readers look forward to a sequel?

If you are offering a negative recommendation (we all encounter books we just don't enjoy), tell your reader

  • why the book is not likely to interest them.
  • what other books on the same topic or in the same genre might be a better choice.

Recommend it!
