How to use our search engine:|
Three ways to find a book or movie:
2) Click on one of the tabs above like "Sci-Fi" or "Literature" and browse
though our lists of authors, books, and films!
3) Or do a detailed search by
Plot, setting, or character
There are a zillion book review sites out there, but ours is different! For starters, we classify books based on plot, setting, character, and writing style. Therefore, if you know what kind of book you like, you can find other authors who write similar kind of stories.
For example, if you like murder mysteries involving the murder of lawyers on cruise ship in the 1990's where the investigator loves her Mom but hates cats, you can actually search for a crime story with that kind of plot and main character. If you want a
a romance involving a woman who's in love with a pirate, and maybe also the pirate's brother and the pirate's dad, off the coast of Sweden in the 1700's, you can search specifically for that as well.
Just remember when searching that each genre (Literature, Romance, Mystery, etc.) has its own unique search engine, so be sure you're in the genre you want to do the searching in.
Our site is unique in that our reviews are tremendously more detailed and specific than those of most other sites. Usually people will write "book reviews" with variations of "Book good!" or "Characters good!" which is useless to readers who do not know what the reviewer's taste is. Our reviews will give you the general outline of the plot, and a very
specific, searchable, breakdown of the plot, setting, character types, and style of the book or film in question.
