How to write a Book Review • Readers don’t have to know everything that happens in your book, or all of your reasons for liking it. • Try to say enough so other students can decide if they want to read it themselves. These questions should be answered in your review: • What is the title of the book? • Who is the author of the book? • What is the book about? • What is the book’s theme or message? • What do I like about this book? What is the title of the book? Who is the author of the book? Characters • Who were the main characters in your book? • Choose one of those main characters and write three detailed sentences describing that character. • Make sure your descriptions paint a picture of your character in our minds. Setting • Where does your story take place? • Give three detailed sentences about where your story takes place. • Use words that help us to visualize where this is taking place. What is the book about? What events happen in the story? Only highlight a few events – don’t give the whole story away. What do I like about the book? • Does the book start in an exciting or interesting way? • Does the book contain a lot of action or suspense? • Does the main character show courage or strength? • Does the book end in a surprising way? What is the book’s theme? • What message about life is the author trying to make? • How do you know that this is the message?
