The Book Commentary reviews unpublished and published books —eBooks, short stories, audio books, short stories, and everything in-between. While your review will be permanently posted on The Book Commentary website and on our facebook page, most of our reviewers are book bloggers who take delight in posting their reviews for their audiences and on sites like Goodreads, Barnes & Nobles and Google+.
Your book review will feature a concise summary of the book in one paragraph, with highlights on plot points and structure. This is followed by a mini critique of the book and it is in this area that the reviewer shares their thoughts on the book, highlights the book’s strengths, taking into consideration elements of style — suspense, satire, humor, witticism —, the strength of the language, the storytelling craft, character depth, and others.
The review also comes with links to buy on Amazon and local bookstores. We encourage reviewers to consider how well the book is written for the genre and what makes it worth trying.
Note that we only post starred reviews on our website. In lieu of posting negative reviews, we encourage reviewers to send constructive feedback to our authors.
