I have been reading a lot of stories recently, some of them I wouldn't have read if I only had 16 a day. I am having difficulty finding the right score for some of them. The one to ten star approach breaks down for ones I would like to score as "Weird". Its not that I like them or dislike them, however I wouldn't recommend them to anyone else to read. Which means I shouldn't review them either. Maybe there should be an alternate way of giving a story a 6. Or just don't use the vote in calculating the overall score. I think as readers we have a responsibility to vote for every story we read, but what if we can't make up our mind what number of stars to pick?
One of the stories that lead to this post was Retirement by Russell Hoisington.
