I depend on good book reviews to make a decision about reading a book by a new author.
I usually look at the 3, 4 and 5 star reviews. 3 and 4 seem to have a more objective review of the book while still mentioning what could be added or changed.
I sometimes look at the other reviews of the reviewers as well. Some people are serial 5 star people or have no other reviews. I ignore those.
I do not like when a reviewer gives away the details. Similar to movie trailers where you know the entire movie plot. With fiction - that is just horrible.
I like short, to the point and clear reviews that say little but explain enough to convince me why I should read the book.
This is a nice review of Man's Search For Meaning.
If you're in pain, read this book. If you're scared, read this book. If you are lost, read this book. If you are happy, read this book. If you have time, read this book. If you don't have time, read this book. Read this book, read this book.
It is an art to write good reviews.
Not all of us have it but we could try.
