Character Dialog

I read a review for one of my books the other day and a comment the reviewer made caused me to give it some thought. She loved the story, gave it 4 stars, but complained about missing words. I realized that the reader may not have been taking into account that the sentence structure (with missing words) was written that way because that was how my character was speaking. Character dialog would be different than if you were writing their thoughts, or say, a descriptive paragraph.
