Scale


Loved the book. Will probably find ways to bring it up in conversations and insist that people read it.


Liked it well enough. Would probably say that it's a good read, except for [fill in the blank].


Liked it well enough to finish the book but I wouldn't recommend that someone else read it.


So bad I couldn't finish the book. If someone mentioned the book title to me I'd probably shake my head and tell him not to waste his time or money.
