One of the points raised as a result of my post about ratings was that lament often heard from readers:
“Why, oh why, can’t goodreads have 1/2 stars?!”
If I had a dollar, blah, blah. Bunch of drama queens.
At the risk of being stoned to death, I like the simplicity of the whole stars.
There have only been a few – a very few – instances at which time I’ve *barely* ummed and arred over a 1/2 star and this was mainly when I was reviewing for Wave.
Even then, a .25 meant the rating went down, a .75 meant it went up, and a .5 saw me having to decide whether it was really worth going up. Sometimes it was and others, well, not so much.
Anyhoo, are you someone who obsesses over that mythical 1/2 star thing at goodreads? Or do you, like me, not give a toss and wonder what the hell everyone else is raving about?
