Tips Untuk Review Buku

Hye semua..

Sini Sha nak share tips untuk review buku..
Ada kawan share dekat group WhatsApp..
Tapi terpulang juga pada setiap orang..
Setiap orang ada gaya dan cara tersendiri dalam membuat review..
Ini sekadar tips dan guideline..

Tips for Book reviewed
Include title, author, place, publisher, publication date, edition, pages, special features (maps, etc.), price, ISBN.
Hook the reader with your opening sentence. Set the tone of the review. Be familiar with the guidelines -- some editors want plot summaries; others don't. Some want you to say outright if you recommend a book, but not others.
Review the book you read -- not the book you wish the author had written.
If this is the best book you have ever read, say so -- and why. If it's merely another nice book, say so.
Include information about the author-- reputation, qualifications, etc. -- anything relevant to the book and the author's authority.
Think about the person reading your review. Is this a librarian buying books for a collection? A parent who wants a good read-aloud? Is the review for readers looking for information about a particular topic, or for readers searching for a good read?
Your conclusion should summarize, perhaps include a final assessment. Do not introduce new material at this point.
To gain perspective, allow time before revising.
Writing a Fiction Book Review
Note: You don't have to answer every question -- they're suggestions!

Points to Ponder:
What was the story about?
Who were the main characters?
Were the characters credible?
What did the main characters do in the story?
Did the main characters run into any problems? Adventures?
Who was your favorite character? Why?
Your personal experiences
Could you relate to any of the characters in the story?
Have you ever done or felt some of the things, the characters did?
Your opinion
Did you like the book?
What was your favorite part of the book?
Do you have a least favorite part of the book?
If you could change something, what would it be? (If you wish you could change the ending, don't reveal it!)

Your recommendation
Would you recommend this book to another person?
What type of person would like this book?
Things to Bear in Mind:
Don't be intimidated by famous authors -- many have written mediocre books.
Don't review books by people you know, love, or hate.

Do you want to be a book reviewer? Start by doing. Write book reviews for local newspapers. If they don't have a book review section, start one.

If you have a specialty -- romance, mystery, dark fantasy -- cultivate it, become an expert.
