How to Write a Book Review?

                                    What is a Book Review?


A book review is a form of literary criticism in which a book is analyzed based on content, style, and merit.(Wikipedia)

A book review is NOT mere retelling of the story or content of the book. Your review should assess and evaluate the content and should tell the readers whether the author succeeded in conveying the message.

The book review is your opinion about the book you are reviewing. You should express your feelings, reflections and reading experience in your review. You should express your opinion about the book, supporting it with evidence from the book.

There is no particular format or style to write a review. It depends on the creativity and interest of the person writing the review.
