A review means to tell us if you liked the book or not--if it had a good plot, the characters were likable and the story flowed. 
A review is not a regurgitation of the story in your words. B&N so graciously and eloquently provides an overview, you don't have to.

Don't ruin the book for others. Start a blog or a personal journal if you absolutely feel the need to paraphrase the story.

Thank you.   3 out of 5 stars.

    Disappointed - I never connected enough with the characters to know if I like them or not

    I wanted so much to love this book. My heritage is Irish and it did teach me what Free Irish means on my Great Grandparents US census reports. But the characters just did not grab you. They were not luke warm - I kept wanting to feel their emotions, or understand them but they were like carboard characters. Sorry, otherwise the storyline would have been fantastic - but it misses the mark by a long shot.
