Kethylia’s Review Rating Scale

All books are rated on a 1-10 Scale, with 10 the highest possible score. Here’s what the numbers mean:

1-4.5 – Various degrees of badness. Not recommended (unless you’re in a masochistic mood).

1 – One of the worst books I’ve read EVER.
2 – One of the worst books I’ve read this year.
3 – One of the worst books I’ve read this month.
4 – Hmm. You should probably stay away from it, but it won’t kill you or anything.
5 – Indifferent. If it’s one of your favorite genres, go for it. Otherwise, don’t waste your time.

5.5-10 – Various degrees of goodness. Recommended.

6 – Generally recommended for transitory diversion.
7 – Highly recommended as a good, thought-provoking read.
8 – One of the best books I’ve read this month.
9 – One of the best books I’ve read this year.
10 – One of the best books I’ve read EVER.

I base my ratings on three criteria, weighted approximately equal:

1) INTENT – Does the book fulfill its purpose and match the author’s ambitions?
2) TECHNICAL MERIT – How well-written is the book? Is it stylistically remarkable?
3) APPEAL – Quite simply, did I personally enjoy reading it?
