You should absolutely not feel like a jerk or feel like you have to justify rating a book you read 75% of. You didn't like the book and you explained why without ripping anyone a new one. I thought it was a great review. :)

Thanks. I'm glad to hear that. I just know how much effort authors put into their work so I always worry I'm being harsh!

I know what you mean; when I do give a bad review (which isn't often) I try to never get personal or hateful. I have to own up to being sarcastic if a book really made me feel angry or ripped off, but that almost never happens. I'm not out to hurt an author's confidence or destroy them - I certainly couldn't write a book if I had to - but I'm not going to lie either.
Agree with MbD, in reviews I'm just looking to see if the reader liked it and why or why not. Even "it just wasn't for me" will suffice. I appreciate those reviews. You did a good job here, no worries. :)
