Furthermore, one should compare the book to the other books of this author and evaluate it appropriately.
The main body of the book review should contain information about the theme and main ideas and problems of the book. Before that one should supply the professor with a brief plot of the book and then dwell on the characters, events and problems. It is extremely important to observe the characters in the right way and pay attention to their inner and outer description. One should understand that characters enable to understand the problems of the book. The problems can be also discovered with the help of the analysis of the background historic facts taking place in the text and with the help of the biographical facts of the author. Moreover, one should read between the lines in order to find out about the political, social, economic and other issues which can be found in the text.
After the detailed analysis of the book one should prove his point of view about the importance of the book for the world literature. The student should enumerate the strong and weak sides of the book supplying the professor with the arguments and summarize the book review in the most appropriate way suggesting whether the book is worth attention or not.
