Writing Book Reviews As An Author
Inspiration To Make It Easier
By: J Lenni Dorner
is for Hindrance
Did the important characters all have goals, something they worked toward or that gave them purpose during the story? Was it easy to tell what it was that the protagonist and antagonist wanted most, the obstacles between them and it, and what they were willing to do to get it?
Especially for non-fiction or reference, did everything in the book seem to have a purpose?
Writers usually give every named character an internal and external goal, and sometimes a few more goals along the way. Those goals can often tell you what genre you’re reading. Escape a monster? Horror. Get the love interest? Romance.
A hindrance is what makes the story worth telling. That’s why it’s important to think about when writing a book review.
