Rating System

RATING SYSTEM:

* NOT STRANGE: a waste of time,
** A LITTLE STRANGE: not bad, it has some good points, but I would not recommend it,
*** STRANGE ENOUGH: interesting and worth reading/watching,
**** VERY STRANGE: good, compelling, and I would definitely recommend it,
***** BEYOND STRANGE: opens a whole new world to the reader and leaves a lasting impression; or maybe just leaves me overwhelmed at the end of it.

If I can't decide, I sometimes use half-star ratings:

* NOT STRANGE, maybe ** A LITTLE STRANGE
** A LITTLE STRANGE, but not quite *** STRANGE ENOUGH
more than *** STRANGE ENOUGH, almost **** VERY STRANGE
**** VERY STRANGE, but not quite ***** BEYOND STRANGE

I don't often give 1, 2 or 5 stars.
