I didn't realize it didn't include that! I've never let it stop me from expressing whether one has or not.
a good critique addresses those as strong points: if it can touch the reader, move them emotionally, make them THINK and FEEL then that connection is an important part of the crit.
there's a difference, though, between the emotional investment of the author and the emotional reaction of the reader... they don't always correlate
*sigh* i kinda wish more people knew what a good critique was. surely there's a thread here addressing that?
