Here at the Post Rational, we don’t read chapter books because of attention span issues but we do have some expertise in book reviews. Today we are reviewing book reviews from Matthew McConaughey’s new book Greenlights. We will be taking a look at a 1-star, 3-star, and a 5-star review so that you can better understand the review, thus making your decision whether to read the book that much easier.
This review gets right to the point and we like it.The reviewer seems to be showing some dishonesty because they claim they were lost on the third wet dream yet somehow are on a first-name basis with Mr. McConaughey. That normally takes a whole book before you get that comfortable. As a rule of thumb, readers should always give at least 5 wet dream stories before giving up because most books don’t get good until after the fifth.
There is nothing more annoying than expecting to read Matthew McConaughey’s philosophy on life and end up with an autobiography so we can sympathize with this review. It didn’t seem to bother the reader as there is a lot of brown-nosing that follows that statement. It was so cringy that we couldn’t even click on the ‘…more’ link. In the future, we would suggest that if a person has inspired you as much as McConaughey did, please be respectful and learn his last name.
This is a perfect review. Any review that doesn’t begin with ‘alright alright alright’ loses a point right away. It’s like forgetting to put your name on a test when you start it any other way. This was so beautifully written that the reviewer said ‘nuggets of wisdom’ and I didn’t flinch. We learn that Matthew McConaughey’s life is interesting but we’re told that in the least amount of words possible. I felt like I was sitting with this reviewer drinking scotch as she told me how much she loved the book. The final star for me boiled down to one thing, did I want this review to end? Maybe a little, but not a whole lot.
