I agree - I tell students they can write any kind of review they want. They
just have to back it up with reasons. I could get a 5 star review that says
"I loved this book because it was really scary!" I could get a 1 star
review that says "I didn't like this book at all because it was really
scary!" Both are valid reviews that tell why they liked or disliked the
book, and those reading the reviews can get accurate information. (I think
that's way better than, "I gave this book 5 stars because it was awesome!"
What does that mean?)
