How do you rate books that you’ve read?

The main thing for me is…..did the book keep my attention? I’m going to be honest, if the book is unable to hold my attention then I won’t stay with it. I read to keep myself entertained (like someone watching a tv show or a movie) so the book has to hold my attention. If not, I’ll put the book down and never pick it up again.

Last year, I put a book down half way through and quit reading it because the story got bogged down with too much information. Not only did I loose interest but it was making it hard to follow the story. I don’t like it either when a story is hard to follow.
