How do you shake violently?
She's Dating the Gangster
Is it with eyes going white? Anyways, when I read the part "violently" I already imagined him in a convulsion state. How do you show "violently" at that part?
And to think it was just a high fever Usually it would take about half a day for a person to have a fever after getting soaked in wet clothes and cold rain. You don't happened to have a fever in a snap of a finger. The characters were not interesting. You have this bad boy falls in love with the new girl in school and blah, blah, blah. You get the picture. It's mostly a copy-pasted characters from Kdramas such as "Boys over Flowers" and some American chick flicks. Athena Dizon- A flat character.
Aside from not really letting us know her perspective in life, it lacked realism specifically when it comes to her emotions. Most are just rants. Sure, there were phrases such as "I cried I blinked back my tears", but emotions aren't only based on actions.
They are also revealed internally- on her thoughts, opinions, realizations and feelings. That's why there was no connection between Athena and I, because her thoughts were limited. It was hard reading her which shouldn't be if she's Bella Swan, that is lol because First person are the most intimate with readers since both parties know what the character is feeling throughout the story.
Also, Athena which should be, again is not very observant to the things around her and how her life goes.
Also, she has illness, but how could I feel sympathy at her when the author doesn't clearly know how to feel what it's like to be dying. I mean, I'm not saying I have a cancer and I'm dying or that you should really experience something to write about it, no I was like all, "Okay, she's sick.
Sheâs Dating the Gangster shoots to the top of local bestseller lists!
Can't the book SHOW more of how it's like to be dying? I'd probably switch reading to "A walk to remember. Perfect in a way he's popular, handsome, good athlete Goo Jun Pyo, is that you? He has flaws okay, but not something important, not important in bringing up the story. He doesn't have weakness as well at page 30, where in he got in a brawl with a guy and afterwards, he had no any scratch or bruise at all It still bothers me why he didn't explain throughout the story the reason why he and Abigail broke up in the first place.
And the reason why he took a job as a waiter. I don't know but it seems that his type of character are overused by other writers as well on Wattpad. Why people love bad boys, huh? As for the other characters I couldn't care less about them, especially when it comes to Lucas and Abigail-- the stereotypes.
Lucas portrays the good guy- gentleman and loyal who was in a relationship with Abigail-- the mean ex girlfriend of Kenji who's still quite possessive of him. They were undeveloped and were just cut-out cutboards with small roles with no depth. They didn't help develop the story at all.
I'm especially disappointed with Sara, Athena's bestfriend, she doesn't act like one. For example, you don't tell your friend to be in a fake relationship with someone just to get a revenge, because you're probably sure she will get hurt at the end.
But as for her, she supported the idea. The ending was quite unexpected, sounds like Romeo and Juliet. The same scenario just as on their production play where the two major cast was played It must have been an easy read but it really was not.
Some stories I've read before were cliche but at least they were written properly. I barely got through chapter 15 and this story has 50 chapters if I'm not m A lot of my friends recommended this so I thought that I may give this story a chance. I barely got through chapter 15 and this story has 50 chapters if I'm not mistaken.
The characters had the potential to be good but they were really poorly described and written. Plus, it was really irritating to see various emoticons. And by emoticons, I do not mean the simple emoticons. Some sentence were in Tagalog then the next was in English then later some Korean expression will be inserted.
There were words that really bothered me.
I think it was the word "hindi". Instead of using the correct spelling, she used "hinde" and it's so annoying to read. There were too many imperfections of this story but I won't mention them all. Most importantly, I felt like this "book" doesn't have a plot. Okay, it has one but it was too confusing and indirect. I really resisted the urge to just leave the story unfinished.
I really wanted to stop reading.
