How To Write a Memorable Fiction Book Review



We all love reading works of fiction as they have the ability to make us feel a wide range of emotions. A good fiction novel can captivate, thrill, excite and sadden with the turn of each page. We get to know about quality novels by reading reviews in newspapers, magazines or online websites. Reviews decide which ones we purchase and which we should ignore. But did you know that anyone can be a credible book reviewer? 

Reviewing a book is a way of helping other readers understand if a book is worth investing their money, time and effort into. Reviews are also important as it really makes no sense to judge a book by its cover. If you are keen on reviewing a book, you need to do it well. You cannot just write an essay on your general viewpoints. Reputed book reviewer David Justin Urbas has some key tips that aspiring reviewers can follow. Let's have a look below. 

Fundamental tips for writing a memorable fiction book review - 

1. Be honest in your viewpoints - Do not think about towing the mainstream line just because another review has got quite famous. If you are going to create a review, make sure you do it in an honest manner. Your readers will appreciate it. 

2. Briefly introduce a book - Before you can go into the good, the bad and the not so bad, it is important to tell readers what a book is about. Describe in a few lines what the book is about, at the start of your review.  This really has to be brief, and not reveal much about the interesting plots and twists in the story. Avoid including those by all means.
