This section is for posting book reviews. Not just a sentence stating that you've read a book and want to discuss it (Literary Discussion is the place for that).

Make sure when you're starting a new thread, your book review contains:
  • The title of the book
  • The name of the author
  • What it's about - Don't give away any spoilers, but tell us a little of what happens in the book. The back cover is a great example. Just enough to get you interested, but not so much that it ruins the book. If you want to include some spoilers, use a [spoiler][/spoiler] tag.
  • What you liked about the book, and why - Was the story exciting? Did you like the characters? Descriptions? Remember, a review is your opinion - include stuff even if you think other people may disagree
  • What you didn't like, and why - Same as before, but tell us the negatives.
  • Do you reccomend the book? - Overall, do you enjoy it? Do you think others will enjoy it too?
After the first post, everyone can go ahead and discuss the book.
