All of the books that are reviewed on Out of This World SFF Reviews are evaluated using a traditional "five star" rating system. Here is a guide along with a brief description of what each rating represents in my mind:
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 - Literally out of this world tremendous. This is a book that I probably flew through in a week or two and couldn't stop turning the pages. The highest quality of writing, story and world-building.
🌟🌟🌟🌟 - An excellent book. This is a read that hit most of the right chords with me and was one that I wanted to read every free moment that I had, but fell just short of a five-star for minor reasons.
🌟🌟🌟 - A solid book but not great. It was enjoyable but left me wanting in a few areas.
🌟🌟 - Underwhelming at best. This is a book that I didn't care for pretty early on and most-likely couldn't wait to finish.
🌟 - Lost interest quickly, maybe even abandoned after 100 pages. Not my cup of tea at all.
