Friday Coffee & Bookish Speaks – Is my rating system fair?

It just occurred to me, for the first time today, that my rating system might not be fair! What!  The reason being is that my system doesn’t allow for different levels of author’s craftsmanship. I was reading and reviewing a book today and realized that I am pretty hard on this author because I expect more out of her.

The reason being is that my system doesn’t allow for different levels of author’s craftsmanship. I was reading and reviewing a book today and realized that I am pretty hard on this author because I expect more out of her. Then it got me to thinking, Hey! that’s not fair.

Some authors I take their writing with a grain of salt and thoroughly enjoy the story. I’m not so critical of them because I don’t expect much. I often don’t read more of their stuff either. This particular author I’ve read more of than most. This author is really good at what she does, yet she hasn’t gotten higher than a 4 from me.

I realize now that my rating system might not be fair to every author. Yet, I can’t make a perfect system that will allow for every intricate facet. So I need to go down the middle road. At least that won’t miss as much.
