Reviews on a bad book?

It's inevitable - someday, somehow you will pick up a book that sounds interesting. Once involved in the story, you realize that the plot is weak, characters are flat, and you didn't even enjoy reading the gratuitous sex scene. It was a BAD BOOK. You want to warn your fellow reading community that this is not worth their time, but how can you effectively write a book review without getting caught up in your anger for a blatant misuse of the English language? Well, I have found an excellent handout about writing book reviews. It provides an outline for writing a review as well as tips to keep a balanced perspective in your review, even when you felt like burning the book after reading it.

You can find the handout HERE.
