To Quote the Almighty Wikipedia:
A book review is a form of literary criticism in which a book is analyzed based on content, style, and merit. A book review can be a primary source opinion piece, summary review or scholarly review. Books can be reviewed for printed periodicals, magazines and newspapers, as school work, or for book web sites on the Internet. A book review's length may vary from a single paragraph to a substantial essay. Such a review may evaluate the book on the basis of personal taste. Reviewers may use the occasion of a book review for a display of learning or to promulgate their own ideas on the topic of a fiction or non-fiction work.
That being said on the basis of personal taste I use gifs, images and the word to image ratio is on a sliding scale.
My reviews are not professional, based purely on my reading experience, and I don't make excuses for it. Whether you agree or disagree is irrelevant to my current or future postings. I don't expect others (except my husband) to change their reviews to suit my tastes and ask that it be reciprocated.
I am currently not accepting requests to review material.
