Book Scores
« on: September 05, 2009, 03:22:43 PM »
My book score is as follows:

100-90%-Perfect Books that fall in this rating have suspenseful plots, plenty of action, and believable characters.
I highly recommend this book to everyone!

89-80%-Terrific Anything in this category has believable characters and medium action, but a few flaws.

79-70%-Great These books have good values and mysterious plots, but noticeable just. . .blah that keeps it from anything better

69-60%-Good An overall good book, but it won't keep you entertained for more than a month.

59-50%-Medium It's not good, it's not bad, but if it's 55+, the good is over the bad.

49-40%-Down There The author apparently did not use his or her's full potential, or they wrote it when they were hyper.

39-30%-Bad--Just Bad Based on it, try to stay at least 250 feet from this book.

29-20%-Awful They just had a checklist of what makes a Hardy Boys book and checked down it, so nothing special.

19-10%-Stay Away Oh, no! It's almost there, at . . .

9-0%-Against the Law Low down stinker! Don't read it!

P.S.
The idea is for you to post your grading levels for books.

Any what? Casefiles? I got a couple from AMazon. Try there.

Rolling his eyes, Joe sat on the window sill and started sawing.
"Thank you, Joe."
"You're welcome, Martha Stewart."

OK, and I think there's a few in the main branch of the county's library system.

And before we swing TOO off topic, the purpose is to post a review and grading system for books.

Let me just quickly suggest eBay and Bookfinder.com to find Casefiles.

So, I don't really consciously grade books. But the main things I look at is the believability, originality, and writing style.

And I guess I generally/informally break it into three ranks: not that good, mediocre, and excellent.

So the general feeling of the house is that not to many people use a grading system  :(, but we've only tested a few.

I use 5 star rating system. I've used it in the polls in the Graphic Novel board.

Going by ken10's rating system I would have to give Cave Trap a 1% Against The Law rating;  Aside from Frank washing a rope...there is nothing else that is interesting in the book.

Yeah...washing a rope!  (shakes head)
