I've decided I'm not a book critic, so I'm no longer going to offer bland critiques of the books I read in the log. Instead, I'll use a simple rating system (all ratings highly subjective and based on my admittedly unsophisticated reading tastes):
I liked the book and if I were a betting woman, think you might like it too.
YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary)
I liked the book but for various reasons am not sure you would like it, or
The book left me indifferent, or
I disliked the book but know other people loved it so we'll chalk our differences up to a matter of taste.
It's up to you to figure out which of the three applies.
I didn't like the book and don't think you should waste time on it either.
