We understand that sometimes life gets in the way, and the next thing you know your book review essay writing completion date is looming. Or perhaps you have so much on that you don’t have enough time to devote to writing a thorough and compelling review and you do not know how to write a book review essay properly.
Book review essay writing can seem an onerous task – especially if you’ve never written one before. They are highly individual because everything stated is your personal view and what the book meant to you as an individual. Because of this, there are no hard and fast rules as to how to write an essay of this type – so advice given is more of a general guideline.
§ This is a book review essay, not a book report
Think of a multiple book review essay as a type of compare and contrast paper similar to what you may have written for a general issue-oriented composition class. As you read through each book, write down questions concerning what you want to know about each book and answer them as you read [remember to note the page numbers from the book you got the information from so you can refer back it later!]. Which questions to ask yourself will depend upon the type of books you are reviewing and how the books are related to each other.
