First, create a title page. This page should list your important identifiers such as the name, course info, subject title, and date. Next, at the top of the first page of the book review, list the full title of the book under review and list it the way it would look in a formal bibliography (or a footnote): Caitlin joseph, 1332
example: Linda Reed, Simple Decency and Common Sense: The Southern Conference
Movement, 1938-1963 (Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 1991) [Notice that the book title is italicized and the publication info is placed in parenthetical notes and in this order, i.e., place of publication followed by a colon, then list the publishing company and the year of publication. Again, this is standard].
Then begin your review. The book review should have three components: 1) the introduction, 2) descriptive summary, and 3) concluding assessment. The introduction presents the book under review by briefly highlighting the work’s thesis. The opening paragraph should also tell the reader something about the book’s author—who the individual is, their goal in writing the work, and the writer’s background, if known. The next paragraphs should summarize the book. The writer does not have to discuss the book exhaustively but should point out some of the most important facts of the book. Two to four paragraphs discussing the book in some detail in the form of a summary suffices, although some thematic, detailed analysis is welcome. The final section of the review provides the reader with an overall assessment or opinion of the book. Discuss why you believe the book is or is not relevant. What makes the book worthy of readers? Give the reader your honest recommendations and criticisms of the work.
Please include in the review all names, places, dates, events, themes, explanations, and rationales. The final review should consist of four to six paragraphs, each forming four to six sentences at length. In addition, please write transitional sentences within the body of the paragraphs as well as at the beginning and end of your paragraphs. Once again, the book review should include a discussion of the book’s thesis and major themes, detailed descriptive analysis of events and individuals discussed, being sure to place special emphasis on one or two themes, and a conclusion that evaluates the book under discussion. Do not forget to acknowledge the book’s author in the opening paragraph. In addition, recommend the work to readers (If this is your recommendation). As well, good topic and key sentences for each paragraph, for the most part, will help writers find their way through the intellectual, creative journey that goes with writing the review. Do not forget that the professor wants students to download a published book review to use as a guidepost and integrate into the assignment. Finally, provide the reader with a formal Works Cited page or Select Bibliography of the work [book review] used in the book review [Since the book being reviewed will be listed atop the first page of the review, the reader only needs to list the book review on the Select Bibliography or Works Cited page. See below: Do the select bibliography in this format. Students should also use and cite any biographical info they find about the author. The author will have a website; as well, I have something on the Blackboard page about the author. Thus, please cite the website info used to describe the author.
