Sobre la meva biblioteca

How I rate:


While 'quality' is certainly a factor, whether or not I actually -liked- the book is a factor too. For something as personal as reading you can't tell much from a star system, so my goal is to include an in depth review of everything rated to explain my rating. In general the way I rate is the following:

1 Star - Didn't like it. Didn't finish it. Skipped large chunks of writing out of boredom or frustration. Cannot see why someone -would- like it. On top of that, the writing wasn't good.

2 Stars - Didn't like it but it has its merits beyond my taste. Either the writing was awful but the ideas were fun, or the writing was great but the ideas were heinous, or perhaps there was nothing particularly bad about it but I was not the audience at all.

3 Stars - Read it, forgot it. Plot was basic, writing was basic, nothing caught my breath or my heart or my mind. Wasn't bad, but could have been a lot better.

4 Stars - A good book. I enjoyed it and forgot that I was reading because I was engrossed in the story or ideas. The writing may not have been the best, or something about the book irked me to the point where I could point out specific areas that I was not happy with.

5 Stars - Awesome. These are the books I read for. They may not be perfect but they sure as hell are close. I will read these multiple times and probably enjoy the prose enough to have a line or two or small, well written scenes memorized.
Sobre mi
I read a lot of fantasy and sci-fi, and a LOT of non-fiction on various subjects, like world mythology, philosophy, current events, linguistics, books (Yes, books about books) , and so on.
