Don't get discouraged, it takes awhile to get the feel of this site, what is needed for helpful rate, etc... But the ultimate mistake is to give a major spoiler. Other than that, your reviews needs a bit more depth. I caoul have written as much, despite never having read the book from the Amazon description. Just read a few reviews and then take your time. If at all possible, start with a few books you feel very strongly about ? It is always raised to write about what you love or hate. by Marge3781
Spoilers are hugely frowned upon! You're meant to be giving a taster rather than ruining the entire plot for any potential reader! by Secre
