Welcome to the site. The charts will be expanding in the coming weeks so you'll be able to see more reviews. You can have a look in the meantime in the 'thanks' thread which often give thanks if a review is very constructive. Click on 'view authors books' below the name of the person doing the thanking. You can also have a look at the literary professional reviews in the professional reviews forum, which give a good idea of how to frame a review, including how they do it when there are various areas of a piece of writing that need some development.
As the saying goes on the review pages, 'there is always something positive to say about a piece of work'. What helps fellow writers is if you point to strengths and areas which can be improved, as the evidence collectively adds up for the writer about what works and what doesn't as they get more reviews in. Constructively pointing out areas which can be improved will help the author do that.
Members have said that doing reviews constructively also helps them think about and develop their own writing.
We wish you every success.
