Abstract
Reviews of well-read novels on Goodreads are in the form of a discussion forum and provide an alternative discursive pattern. This paper is centered on the Indian Narrative Tradition, contending that such an approach enables us to critically engage with the reviews as a case study, thus synthesizing a narrative design developed through practice. Unlike other reviews that focus on benefits or lack thereof, there are no acknowledged rules for book reviews on Goodreads. The paper analyzes the reviews and defines a book review within narrative research. The quality of the reviews is aimed at describing alternative domestication patterns. The selection of classic novels for review is employed to maintain an effective strategy. Thus, it is demonstrated that the dynamics of alternative narrative during the process of review writing follows the organizational pattern of Indian Narrative Tradition. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
