Writing Book Reviews As An Author
Inspiration To Make It Easier
By: J Lenni Dorner
is for Universal life lessons
Did the author convey the theme well enough that you got the overall purpose of the book? Themes are universal life lessons. Authors are expected to notice themes. For non-fiction or reference, did the book educate you to the best of the author’s ability, in your opinion? Are you different because of this book, and in what way? Has knowledge or wisdom been imparted, and were you able to soak it up?
Themes like overcoming the odds, love conquering all, dealing with grief, surviving in nature, regaining religious faith, the importance of family or friends, and the bravery of soldiers are all popular examples. If you can relate to it, or if the theme helps you better understand something about life, that’s worth mentioning.
If you can’t relate to the theme of the book, chances are that you won’t give it five-stars.
