PICK OF THE MONTH – [sic], AN ENTHRALLING TALE

Hello guys! I’m getting a little irregular nowadays, aren’t I? Though my life is getting a bit hectic, I can never  get over my addiction to wattpad and nor do I want to.

In between my busy schedule, the one story that kept me addicted till the end was [sic].

Since I had previously read a romantic wattpad story, THE HOODIE GIRL, I was browsing to read a story from Mystery genre,when I found this really interesting and weird looking title and thought of giving it a try. Sometimes I just have this habit of not reading the brief intro of the story the author provides, because I do not like to know the details of the story before hand. So the title offering very little information, and me, having no clue as to what the story is, started to read it. Read on to find out my take on it.

TITLE: [sic]

AUTHOR: SCOTT KELLY

GENRE: MYSTERY

The story is a very refreshing and a new one, nothing like I have ever read, not in wattpad, and not even from the novels I had read. The story revolves around a game, ‘Eureka’. It is not just a fun game, it is based on the psychology of the human mind, on how it responds and accepts the situations that are indirectly spelled out to us by the society.

David, the founder of Eureka, is fascinated by people characterizing themselves based on how the others want us to be. He starts experiments to try to see if he can change the way they perceive themselves and sometimes harming people in the way, but not really caring about its after effects. Jacob, is a friend of David and he, along with five others are involved in playing the game, Eureka, with David.

Eureka is a game in which a person, when tagged, has to change his/her life within 15 minutes. David believed that it brought out people to do things which normally they wouldn’t. As the game went on between these six high school students, there arises jealousy, ego, deception and some hard truth, which changes the their lives totally. But whatever the game did to them, it didn’t matter as they got addicted to it, which was the only source of constant change in their miserable life.

With the bumps along the way comes the real twist, the death of their leader, David.

The story starts off with the death of David, and Jacob explaining all about the game and the things it did to their life.

The story kept me hooked till the end. The author had did a very commendable job of detailing the intricacies of the human tendency, and paralleling it with their lives.

The last message from the story that, change is constant, that it is better to adopt to changes voluntarily, before change forces itself on us, just nailed the whole crux of it.

A brilliantly written piece worth every second to spend!

PICK OF THE MONTH –  CONFESSIONS ABOUT COLTON 

TITLE : CONFESSIONS ABOUT COLTON 
AUTHOR : OLIVIA HARVARD 

GENRE : MYSTERY 

Hello guys! For this month, my pick is, ‘Confessions about Colton’, which is a thriller story. This story is one of the few mystery stories that kept me in the edge of the seat, from the start to the time I completed it. 

The story opens up right in the middle of the strange plot, where Elliott Parker grieves for the death of his best friend, Colton. There was always a lot of mystery surrounding Colton, like the time he disappeared some time back and no one could find out where he was, but he came back without giving so much as an explanation. But this time, he was gone, for good. 

During the memorial service for his friend, Elliott gets a letter from the murderer of Colton, stating the reason for his murder will be revealed if he  would follow some things he mentioned in the letter and search for the next clue to the letter. 

Elliott was, at first, doubtful to take it up or not, but his curiosity to know the reason for his friend’s death  got the better of him and he started searching for clues and soon one led to an other, and he was baffled by the things he started learning about Colton, that, at one point, he felt like he never knew anything about his best friend. 

The things which were revealed by the clues, exposed a different side of his friend and also some details about what he did during his first disappearance. 
And in comes Colton’s girlfriend and Elliott’s sister into the plot and the mystery kept growing till the very end. 

The climax was the most powerful one of all. The twist in the end was just so unexpected and the plot was handled well. 

Kudos to the author for writing such a gripping tale and revealing things only what the readers needed to know in the beginning and directing the readers towards one thought  and opening out an entirely different thing in the end. ☺

MISTER POPULAR’S LITTLE SISTER –

TITLE: MISTER POPULAR’S LITTLE SISTER
AUTHOR: DANCINGINSUNLIGHT

GENRE: TEEN FICTION

Marley Parker has no other way, but to live with her brother and her father, with whom her mother got divorce when she was just 10 years old. Her brother is a popular school jock and she is a timid yet pretty girl with specs.

Her brother doesn’t stand up for her in the beginning, when his own friends make fun of her, but in the end he comes to her rescue. She gets a new friend in school and there are accounts of how she enjoys with her friend.

And there is a complicated background story about her mother and her grandmother and her so-called date and her ex-boyfriend. The author tries to bring in multiple story lines into one and have seems to have mixed up the thread with one another.

Though the story about her mother and the reason why she came here was credible, the story would have been better if it was only focused on that. Instead there was an unnecessary introduction about her ex-boyfriend who happens to end up in the same place as hers.The climax was cliched and expected.

It is a decent try for the author, the language and the narration are good. If the author has focused on a single story line, it would have come out much better.

My Rating: 6/10

 

PICK OF THE MONTH – TRAPPED, DEPRESSINGLY BRUTAL

She was shut in a cabin in woods and was raped repeatedly by both of the kidnappers and tortured mentally and was made to do things which would haunt her for life.

When she was still in her depression, the most horrible thing that could ever happen to a survivor happened to her. She was once again forcefully taken by the same kidnappers, by mentally manipulating her by kidnapping an other virgin.

With a mix of a psychological thriller and a very powerful narrative of the pain a rape survivor goes through, the author clearly reflects the feelings of the Kelsey to the readers. A definite read for people with a thirst for psychological thriller.
