While watching, consider:

Visuals?
Were they clear? Well chosen? Did they help to create or exemplify the books's mood, theme, setting, conflict? How about timing? Special effects?

Sound/Music/Narration
Was the music well chosen? Was tempo of chosen music effective? What kind of mood did it create for the trailer? Was it effective? Appropriate for the book? Was it timed well according to the script? Was volume of music and voice synced?

Script?
Was it well written? Did it convey the books theme, mood, conflict, rising action? Was the tone of the words effective at creating a mood that complements the book? Was it persuasive? Was it's length effective?

Overall Effect?
Was the trailer persuasive? Did it get you interested in reading the book? Was it meaningful?
