First Impression

You should never judge a book by its cover…Judge it by its first chapter! Yep, those first few pages are the most important ones.  They give readers a sense of what the book is about and will either help the book sink or swim.  That’s why I created this category called First Impression for my blog. So how does this work?

I will read the first chapter of a book and review it based on my impression of it.   (The ranking that I came up with is only for the first chapter and does not reflect the book’s overall quality.)

Ranking based on a scale of 1-5.

1- Dreadful. The chapter was extremely difficult to read and had many errors within it.

2- Bad. The chapter was better but still had error and was boring.

3- Good. The chapter was okay but had a few dull spots.

4- Great. The chapter was enjoyable to read.

5- Excellent. Did not want to put the book down.

Each review will end with a Final Verdict.

Final Verdict:

The First Page: 1-5

Characters: 1-5

1- Very 1 dimensional characters, 5-Characters are fleshed out and real.

Plot: 1-5

1-Very boring plot that does not flow well and is not believable, 5- Amazing plot that keeps me wanting to read more.

Would I continue reading it? Yes/No (Not part of the ranking)
Would I recommend it? Yes/No (Not part of the ranking)

Overall Impression: 1-5
