Aside from the reviews, I’m leaving star-based ratings, because why not? Maybe ten words aren’t quite enough. The star system is out of ten – ten words, ten stars.
One Star = something I hated and want to throw into a rain puddle, e.g. Gravity’s Rainbow (Review: Man gets boner, bomb strikes. Fecal fetish? Verbose without purpose.)
Ten Stars = a beloved book with which I will never part, e.g. Smoke and Mirrors by Neil Gaiman (Review: Wonderous other worlds disguised as gorgeous short stories. More, please!)
