Good authors spend a lot of energy and time on constructing a plot and providing surprises to keep the reader engaged and entertained-- when you come along and tell those twists and turns and outcomes, you have just spoiled it for anyone else--which is why its called a SPOILER. This is one time when you should be vague.One thing that makes that challenge more formidable is the free-for-all that is the book review.

Its unfortunate that so many book reviewers dont seem to understand what a reviews purpose is. In simplistic terms, a book review is meant to inform a potential reader of the merits (and sometimes, demerits) of a book, so that they can make an informed decision about whether or not to read it.

A review is NOT a soapbox, a torture-chamber, nor an opportunity to elevate yourself above someone who does something you have never done yourself. Also, if you are not reading in a genre you like to begin with, you have no business doing a review.Thus, when you are writing a review, dear reader, dont give away plot twists, surprises, nor the ending of a book.

Have you ever seen a movie trailer or the blurb on the back of the DVD for a movie? Did you notice that they entice you, but dont tell you what happens? Think of it like that. Its a teaser, not an unveiling.
