Our simple, 5-suitcase rating system, expressed in traveling terms.
– Outstanding adventures (our favorites)
– We’d go there again! (excellent)
– Beach vacation (enjoyable)
– The view was nice, but the food was bad (meh)
– The plane was delayed, the luggage lost, and the museums closed (we dislike these)
0 – False start (could not finish)
Generally, we’d recommend books that receive ratings of between 3-5 stars.
