Rating:

less than *** Life is too short
*** Flawed but readable.
***1/2 Very readable. Solid workmanship. Thin in some aspects.
**** Very good indeed. Flashes of brilliance, engaging content, characters, themes developed. Recommended
****1/2 Highly recommended
***** I loved it, either because it is an inspired or profound work or I. Could. Not. Put. It. Down.

Books are rated in a few different ways: Pure enjoyment, great story telling and literary merit. Point being that the stars can mean one or the other. With genre reads I tend to award stars for decent writing, great characters and story-telling and pure enjoyment (as in, I couldn't put it down); literature, on the other hand, need not be enjoyable--for example I can find a main character, even the narrator repellant or unlikeable but nonetheless find the book well worth the effort. Many factors go into awarding 5 stars, but I wouldn't rate even an accepted classic a five unless I was also engaged at some much deeper level, as in, totally blown away by every aspect of the writing of it throughout. So the 5 rating, ultimately, is personal.

Over mij
I'll read a Pony Club Manual if there's nothing else. When I am not reading or writing I'm striding the woods with my dog or playing Irish music on harp and concertina (at the same time, naturally, I'm very talented).
