Three Star Reviews Are Bunkum
C’mon people. Either you like a book or you don’t. A three star review is the lit evuivalent of meh. Let’s be honest. If the book is meh, you’re not going to keep reading. If you can’t finish it, it’s not a three-star; it’s a one or two at best.
Case in point – Now I know lots of people love it, but I can’t stomach Moby Dick. I’ve tried. I’ve given that damned thing multiple, I mean a good six or seven tries over the years, and I’ve never made it past the first ten or fifteen pages. It’s boring! I can’t keep reading it. It’s MEH, and that’s why it gets a single star from me.
I confess I’ve rated books three stars, in the past, but really, I just can’t be stuffed any more. It’s one, two, four or five.
