The appearance of a book can make a signiﬁcant impact on the experience of a reader, whose enjoyment is often enhanced by an enticing cover, an intriguing table of contents, interesting chapter headings, and when possible, eye-catching illustrations.
The characters of a book should be well deﬁned with strengths and ﬂaws, and while they do not have to be likable, the reader does have to be able to form a connection with them. The tone should be consistent, the theme should be clear, and the plot should be original or told from a unique perspective. For informative books — those without plot and characters–this rating refers primarily to your concept and how well you presented it.
Development refers to how eﬀectively you told your story or discussed your topic. The dialogue should be realistic, the descriptions should be vivid, and the material should be concise and coherent. Organization is also a key factor, especially for informative books — thosewithout plot and characters. The order in which you tell your story or explain your topic and how smoothly it ﬂows can have a huge impact on the reader’s understanding and enjoyment of the material.
