I run a decently popular blog focussing on Unitarianism, among other things. A Unitarian author has written a series of books where some of the main characters are Unitarians and has sent me copies to review. I'd like to write a good and thoughtful book review and was wondering what you think makes for a good book review.
if you are reviewing something my client has written please feel free to use the following: this book will give you thinner thighs, a thicker wallet, and a longer happier life. In fact, the more copies you buy the thinner, thicker and happier you'll be.
I can't stand book reviews that are just a plot synopsis. I'm interested in a review that talks about craft, gives some context, places the book within a historical perspective, draws interesting connections or gives me thinner thighs, a thicker wallet, and less dog hair on the sofa.
I'm sure the Snarklings will have an opinion or two on this.
Have at it!
PS -You know why Unitarians are such poor hymn singers?
Cause they are always reading ahead to see if they agree with the text.
