Peta Jinnath Andersen presents Getting Inside the Book Review: How They Work & Why We Read Them posted at *Insert Literary Blog Name Here*, saying, “Why do we read book reviews? Why do they work? Much like a good story, reviews need a strong hook, clear voice, pacing, and balance. Longer reviews often achieve this by tying the narrative to a personal story, giving the reader something to hold onto. Although this may seem slightly narcissistic (there’s something slightly narcissistic about all writing, I suppose), it’s actually a very useful way for the reviewer to get inside the reader’s head.”
