Amazing beyond words! I try to reserve my five star (or flower ;) ratings for the absolute cream of the crop- really special books which I revisit again and again and wish the entire world would read.
A great book which I loved reading, but which doesn't have that je ne sais quoi of a five star read.
A perfectly enjoyable read, but didn't do much to stand out from the crowd.
Readable, but that's about it. I probably wouldn't try it again or recommend it to anyone.
Didn't finish or didn't really want to finish.
And just in case you're wondering how generous (or not) I am, from the 83 books I read in 2012, I rated:
1 one star14 two stars29 three stars28 four stars11 five stars!
