A book review is the summarised criticism of the book written by any author. It can be done by the general public, professional critics, and avid book readers. A book review can become part of the e-commerce pages for the book to get online sales or attract a target audience for building a good reach. Reviews can be a single-liner or essay length for a descriptive or detailed review.
The younger generation of the population loves experimenting with different genres of books, and book reviews help get more audience towards a book written by newer authors. It can be written in any format and does not have any prescribed way of writing.
However, keeping the wording crisp and non-repetitive would engage more audiences to read and compel them to buy a book and give it a read.
Reviews help in getting an idea of the overall notion of the book. It is opinion-based and personally attached to the thinking process of the reviewer. The practice of reviewing is good for budding editors, as the process of editing requires a lot of criticism and minute checks that can change the audience’s viewpoint.
