When choosing a new book to read, do you read the reviews? Amazon seems to have the most prolific reviews and a lot of authors depend on them.
As a reader, which type of review do you prefer?
One that summarizes the entire book?
Or one that is more along the lines of "I liked it, and here's why"?
I know what my preference is, which is reflected in the reviews I've left. I do try to leave a review for 90% of the books I read - either on Goodreads or Amazon (usually both) - as an author I know how important they are.
I am interested - which type of review do you prefer and why?
