Rating Scale

★★★★★ This book has changed the way I see the world and will stay with me for the rest of my life.  I want a copy in my bookshelf, with the author’s signature.

★★★★ It was an amazing read, and I would read it again when I forget the sequence of events and the ending.

★★★ A pleasant read, but there seemed to be something missing that disappointed me, as it was a good story overall.

★★ It was an average read; the only reason I finished it is because I felt incomplete without coming to the ending.  I did not have an emotional response to the story.

★ All books are written with a lot of perseverance, sweat, and tears, but this one was not for me.  I gave it a chance but put it away soon after.
