Re: What do you expect to understand from a fiction book review? Mention 5 elements.
I'm mainly interested in whether they think it is worth reading. I'm not interested in a synopsis of the story - I'll find that out for myself. If it's a reviewer I know,it would be enough for them to say 'recommended' because we have similar tastes. Five elements? I guess: 1. Well-written 2. Good plot 3. Likeable characters 4. Believable story 5. Star rating
