Book Review : Workshop

September 23, 2021 - December 17, 2021

Invitation to write Book Review

Writing book review is an important academic and literary-critical activity. Some of the best known writings in many fields have first appeared as reviews. Book Reviews in prestigious journals are greatly valued by scholars.

KAPMI LIBRARY is initiating a programme to motivate students from degree colleges to learn the art and craft of writing book reviews. If you are interested in learning the skill of reviewing please join the programme.

We intend to share the book reviews and award prizes once in each semester. We also intend to bring out the award winning reviews in book form.


How to Write a Review.

  • Read the book you have selected carefully, preferably twice.
  • Collect Information about the author and the book from reliable sources.
  • Make your notes when you are reading.
  • Write down your impressions before drafting the review.
  • Begin by introducing the book focusing on the area /field and give a brief description in a few sentences.
  • Avoid biographical details of the author. Avoid exaggerated descriptions such as great/greatest etc. But you can briefly mention one or some of the author’s other books if they are related to the book under review.
  • Introduce the book to the reader its form, nature, chapters or divisions, main theme etc.
  • Avoid summary of the book. Instead state clearly what the book deals with, its significance and its contribution.
  • Avoid first person impressions in the statements such as ‘I feel,’ I think’. You are of course free to present your views on the book.
  • Take care to see that your review becomes a readable essay.
  • For models read reviews in reputed magazine and journals.
