If you watch any contemporary crime drama, you know the importance of an autopsy, but what exactly is a "book autopsy"?
Questions to be asked:
--Are the characters believable? Do they follow a full arc? Do they make a fundamental change in their nature or do they force a change in their environment?
--Does the plot deliver? Is it consistent? Are parts too slow?
--What parts of the book are confusing? What are the best written parts?
--What is the author trying to say, if anything?
--How do our cultural upbringings affect how we read the book/like the book?
