Rating System

    BAD – In many cases, I couldn’t even bring myself to finish the book.
  1. An awful book. It made me physically sick and/or totally depressed. It was often unintelligible. The author should not be allowed to walk the streets.
  2. A lousy story poorly written. The author had no business writing a book. Or, the philosophy was so evil and destructive that it made me angry.
  3. Nothing by which to recommend it. It depressed me while I was reading it.

  4. MEDIOCRE – I read it, but I wouldn’t recommend it.

  5. This book wasn’t good, but it wasn’t all that bad. It was just kinda there. It was a waste of my time.
  6. The book had potential but failed to live up to it. I wanted to like it, but I couldn’t bring myself to do so.
  7. I didn’t like the book as much as I wanted or expected to. It had a good plot spoiled by poor writing, or good writing spoiled by a poor plot.

  8. GOOD – I enjoyed it, and I’m glad I read it.

  9. I liked the book, but I’m not sure why. Or, I liked it, but I disagree with its philosophy. Or, I liked it, but I’m not sure I’d recommend it.
  10. The book was good. Not great, but good. It was educational and/or entertaining. Perhaps it had a few dull spots, but I would recommend it.
  11. It was a great book, very enjoyable all the way through.
  12. The book was nearly perfect. This is why I read: in hope of finding books like this. I never noticed what page I was on and was genuinely sorry when it was over.
    Have fun!
