A book review is a critical piece of writing which usually either praises or more often criticizes
a book. I do not have any must have’s or absolute requirements but generally a good book review
which will get a grade of A will meet these requirements: 1) 12 point New Times Roman font, double
spaced, 2) the name of the author printed on the top of the first page together with a the title of the book
reviewed as well as a separate title of your book review if you choose to have one, your name and the
names of those in your group, 3) be at least 2 pages long, and 4) be excellent work which means it has
to have evidence of independent thought and contain the reviewer’s opinion about the book, not just a
mere restatement of the thesis of the author.
