Book & Movie Review Guidelines/Suggestions

Have you read interesting books or seen interesting movies?  If so and they’ve dealt with some ethical issue, please consider writing a review for the book or movie, which the webmaster will post here on the blog.

Reviews don’t have to be elaborate.  This is a way for you to share what you like and don’t like, which could be of great interest to other members.

Writing a book or movie review is fairly simple. If you have your own style for writing reviews, that’s great.  Go with that.  Please consider the following when writing reviews:

  • Why do you want other people to read the book or see the movie?  Or maybe you believe they shouldn’t see it
  • Don’t give away the plot (if there is one), but do give an outline
  • Do give your opinion of the book or movie and who would enjoy it

See some other reviews on the Ethical Society website for examples.
