It is very important for reviewers to rate a book on basis of the complete work, not just a part of it. Readers might be put off by the first paragraph but if they find that a review has stated how the book becomes more interesting as it progresses, they might decide to read it in spite of the fact that the first paragraph wasn’t much to their liking.

We don’t know what other great writing has been lost forever.

I learned how to be more concise and economical with words. I think that is what I strive for in each book that I write — to say the most with the least.

I rarely give this rating out. If I do, it usually means I read the book in one sitting, not wanting to put it down for anything, and then I either read the whole thing again, or read my favorite parts again.

Reading enables a person to visit a thousand places without leaving the comfort of home, live a thousand lives without missing out on the real one and relieves and relaxes one’s mind and soul completely.

At last, democracy has reached the world of publishing! Yes, there are works that were published too soon and lack quality writing, revision or editing. But that issue will show itself in sales. Readers are the new agents of industry and the world is a better place for it.
