I recently found a website called “The Uncustomary Book Review,” which reviews books in a whole new way (hence, the title).
Reviewers on the site tell what first attracted them to the book they’re writing about, pick a few favorite quotes, mention new words they learned about while reading the book, and lastly, they briefly discuss some of the thoughts they had while reading.
The idea really charmed me and I’m now happy to report that my first book review is live on the site!
You can find my review of The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien here.
The title may ring a bell for you since I recently blogged about the book.
I assure you, it’s quite a different kind of review.
Check it out and let me know what you think in the comments (here or there).
