I will not always have the same emotions behind the rating but it does express a certain level of "spelling things out" that may not happen if I get excited and talk in circles during a review.
The rating is not the entire review and is a mere semblence of whether or not I liked the book and none of the reasons why I did or did not; therefore, I highly encourage you to read the entire review for the full thoughts and opinions. Also, half ratings are also available.
I didn't like this book, not recommended.
It was okay. No recommendation to or not to read.
For whatever reason, I like this book. Recommended.
I loved this book! Highly recommended!
A phenomenal must-read!
