Rating system

 Even though I try to be as critical and rational as I can, ratings are ultimately emotional. If a book/movie has no faults I can put my finger on but I don’t “feel it”, I can’t give it a maximum rating.

Books: I adapt the Goodreads 5-star rating system so that there can be decimal stars in quarter fractions (.25, .5, or .75).

Movies and TV series: I use the USA grading system, ranging from F to A+.
