In order to help you understand my reviews it helps to understand my rating system. It’s a standard out of 5 rating system, and I attach the following meaning to the values.
Awful, abysmal, there aren’t enough adjectives to describe how terrible it was. Not a single redeemable quality. Avoid like the plague.
Generally poor but one or two redeemable qualities. Still wouldn’t recommend it.
Good but not outstanding. You’ll enjoy it but it won’t stay with you for ages after. Would recommend it as a holiday read or similar.
Really enjoyed and would definitely recommend. Likely only one or two minor issues which prevented me giving it 5/5.
Outstanding, amazing. I couldn’t put it down and will probably be talking about it for weeks to come. Will almost certainly re-read it in future. Would absolutely recommend to anyone.
