I'm curious and would like to find out your thoughts. When you read a book and you do not like it and could not give it at least a 3 star rating, do you still review it? It's been my policy for several years now, that if I can't do that, then I do not write a review, or rate it. My dilemma is: Am I doing a dis-serve to other readers by only reviewing books that I can give 3 stars? What do you think?
Now if I can't finish a book because I totally dislike it, I would never write a review. That just seems unfair to the author. Unless I can finish a book so I get a full picture, I believe it would be wrong to review it. I have seen many reviews, especially on Amazon where the reviewer will say that they only read a small portion of the book, yet they still write a scathingly bad review. Do you think that is fair to the author or the reader? Happy reading!
