Hide and Seek
Writer: Jakayla Toney
When you enter the house, you follow the rules, you play the game…
My name is Emily. I thought it was a normal, abandoned house. I thought she was a normal girl. I thought we’d play a normal game of hide and seek. Turns out I was wrong. Dead wrong…
Another 5 months without update on this site, there are too much spider web around this site, haha. Well, this time, i’m doing something different. As today, i’m not reviewing physical book, but a wattpad story. I’ve been reading on wattpad for a long time, but i never thought to review those story before. Now that i have, i’m going with this story called Hide and Seek.
Hide and Seek, a story by a wattpad user called Ms_Horrendous. Her real name is Jakayla Toney. Well, the reason i read this book is actually because it appears on the recommendation as one of the winner of Wattys 2016, The World’s Largest Online Writing Contest presented by Wattpad.
Based on the blurb, it seems like a great story. Well, perhaps we all know what pulls people attention to a book is the blurb or the first chapter. As i said, the blurb successfully attract me, but the first chapter seems is not doing its job perfectly. Well, it does, but not enough. It does telling you the story where a game of hide and seek is playing, but yeah, it literally just telling us that the main character is an excellent player of it, no story or character development on the first chapter.
Well, i’m just doing the first chapter here, so i don’t spoil too much. On the writing, this story has an effective writing style and understandable grammar for non-native. But also with few grammatical errors. Well, other than that, this story is pretty good. 3 out of 5 for this story.
