Excellent review, I have read the complete series and you've managed to give just enough of the plot without giving it all away, as well as some back story and details of your own thoughts about the inspirations of the books. by taleoftwobooks

Wild Boy grabs the reader and doesn't let go
Review of Wild Boy - Rob Lloyd Jones by Pingupol

Advantages: Plot, characters, description
Disadvantages: Barely any.

Sometimes you pick up a book and it just feels right. Everything about the book is intriguing. You slowly examine the book, possibly read the blurb and begin the first chapter. Some books immediately put you off and make you wish you hadn’t picked them up ... Read review

You have given a good opinion of what you think but I would need to know a bit more about what it is about if you review is actually to inspire me to read it. by buzios
To add to Marge's comment, also what genre it fits into and where could I get a copy and how much without the review reader having to search for the answers. They should already be here, bare that in mind and you will be churning out VH and E reviews before you know it! Not heard of this author before either. by LiveMusicLoverLyn

Too difficult to read and contradictory in places - surely Sophie is a girl, and yet you refer in the second para. as "he". Wondering if this has been auto-translated. " Apparently he did this habit to help the tomato man of giant ambush her" re reading this it makes even less sense, sorry. by RICHADA

fab review though ciao isn't allowing me to rate it grrr by angelboouk123
Sounds deeply disturbing and intense - not surprised some is of it is based on reality, psychopathic power crazed egomaniacs are not uncommon but people keep forgetting that to get on with the mundane trappings. Excellent review. by ladyofflame

This book will take over your time.
Review of The Host - Stephenie Meyer by ChattyPants

Advantages: This book is a great time passer.
Disadvantages: You may be late for work a few times.

The Host is a wonderful book about love and self sacrifice. This book is science fiction, but in my opinion, is one of the most heartwarming science fiction stories that I have come across. This book is about the clash between two different worlds, ou ... Read review

You actually write better than many starters here - given some research and following the advice given below, you have the makings of a good reviewer. R. by RICHADA
I know this book and your enthusiasm shines through, however, apart from giving away the plot you do not really tell a consumer what they need to know to make a purchasing decision. pgn0 has commented excellent advice that writer could build on. by LiveMusicLoverLyn

Just William goes political
Review of William The Fourth - Richmal Crompton by JOHNV

Advantages: Timeless humour for youngsters and the young at heart
Disadvantages: Some references will be rather dated for today's children and need explaining

As one who spends a good deal of time reading fairly serious non-fiction for research purposes as well as book reviewing (often but not always necessarily for ciao), I also spoil myself with what you might call the reading equivalent of a packet of sweets ... Read review

How Amazing Amy became Gone Girl
Review of Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn by brokenangelkisses

Advantages: explores interesting issues, good pace, portrait of a marriage
Disadvantages: ending will not suit all readers

My teetering TBR pile and haphazard reading choices mean I always seem to reach the ‘must-read-book-of-the-year’ just after everyone else has finished reading and talking about it. Gillian Flynn’s third novel, ‘Gone Girl’, is a case in point: hyped as TH ... Read review

Magic And Sarcasm...What's Not To Like?
Review of Rivers Of London - Ben Aaronovitch by missrarr

Advantages: Fresh, original and funny
Disadvantages: I suppose it takes a certain type of humour and preference in fiction

My last jaunt to the library threw up two brilliant finds – fantastic writers that I had never previously encountered. One, already reviewed, was Tom Holt, and the other was the second book that caught my eye on a rebellious day when I picked up books at ... Read review

Rage Against A Killing Machine
Review of Rage Against The Dying - Becky Masterman by gothic_moon

Advantages: Well-written, witty & sharp, gripping premise
Disadvantages: Slightly dubious aspects in some of the premise
