Basis of Rating
I rate based on the feeling that I had once I finished reading the book, and NOT in any way based on the previous books I have read (whether they are of same genre or same story line). I don’t compare books unless they belong to the same series or they are written by the same author. I write mostly a spoiler-free review. In the event that I believe a spoiler is crucial to the review, I will hide them and limit them in as little details as possible. Then, it would be totally up to the readers if they want to read the spoiler or not.
One of my all-time favorite book. I highly recommend this one! I will definitely re-read and re-read it in the future. I felt connected to the characters in the story. I was blown away by the story line. I was held captive by the imagery formed in my mind. I was amazed by the character build-up. The narrative and dialogues are totally mind-blowing. Overall, I totally enjoyed reading the entire book that even after finishing it I still have a book hangover.

I like reading this book but there are some aspects missing or some things I still look forward to. Great qualities, great plot, interesting and lovable characters, not predictable.
I enjoyed reading about 50% of the book but the rest are a bit uninteresting. There are redeeming qualities, nice plot, like-able/ neutral characters, but a bit predictable.
I rarely post a review containing this rating unless the book is part of a book series that I liked and have posted a review on. There are some parts that I enjoyed but most parts are too uninteresting or too predictable.
