We’re back with another review by our reader extraordinaire, Jay. She has been busy trying to balance real life with the love of fiction, and thankfully this week Wattpad won out!
This week, she reviews Always by @styleslegend
The writer is already well known for her One Direction AU fan fictions, but this time, she takes a side character in the 1D world, Best Song Ever character Marcel, and brings him to the written page.
The front page blurb is simple and straight forward:
A story of first true love between an unsuspecting, extroverted girl and an awkward, beautifully magnetic boy.
The writer gives little away in her intro, but thankfully, follows it up on the pages.
In a world of drama, intensity and angst, this story is a nice coming of age tale with a relationship that works well. It is cohesive, not outlandish, and very normal.
The flow is excellent, with relatable dialogue and a plot that holds your attention
While it is an interesting and sweet story, it does move like a 1980’s romcom. But, you know what you’re getting early, and if you want more drama and action, this might not be the story for you.
The RATING – 8.5/10
The story line and plot are so important, and in this story, it is very organic.
