Question of the Week:
Are your reviews more of a rehash of the story or do you comment on writing style, characters, and reflection?
My reviews usually begin with a quick interest statement that sums up the basic idea of the book.
I give a general "rehash" of the story, but my reviews mainly consist of focusing on the author's writing style, the characters, and a reflection of my opinion.
To me a review that has depth is more important than a "rehash."
The reader of the review can always read the back cover to get a basic review so going into detail about the characters and writing style helps more in my opinion.
Looking forward to these answers.
