It is, as you say, a crutch for people wanting to work on the technical side of their review writing, IF they choose to use it; I don't know where you got the idea that it's anything more than that.

Writing reviews gets easier with practice. As I mentioned very early on in the thread, at school we were given a rough template for our book reviews which most of the kids found very helpful and although I tend to go with the flow with my own reviews, I always ensire I include certain elements with the factual information (title, author's name, and even the ISBN of the copy I read) clearly at the beginning so everyone knows exaclty which book I'm reviewing. So you see, even when "going with the flow" we fall into a pattern of ease when we review in order to include all the useful general information as well as our personal thoughts on the book in question.

I don't see reviews as being there to spark discussion - a forum such as this is much better for that!

Always toy with the idea of reviewing, this will definitely help! Thanks!

This is a great list. It's also important to find the redeeming qualities of a book you may not like. I've read and reviewed a lot of books that I didn't particularly care for but knew that other would appreciate it. Balance is key!

I've very recently decided to venture into the world of blogging/reviewing and these suggestions are much appreciated.
I, for one, am glad they weren't torn up into shreds and burnt. Everyone has to start somewhere.

Thanks for this guide. This will definitely help me when I am finally able to start a book-related blog.

This guide helped in my latest review and allowed me to flourish from set points instead of writing a confusing cluster. Thank you for sharing, Kell; bookmarked in the browser.
