I've read this story book version months ago because of a friend and it never left my mind. I have to give my opinion about this. Luckily, I found it here. This is my first ever review in Goodreads so here goes First, I would give it 0.
First, why are the characters Korean? Because I don't understand. I can give them a pass but nah. I guess the author is just living in her own fantasy world which will not gonna happen Second, there was the annoying Korean characters where nobody can read. It was a waste of space. And then after the characters, they put a translation. It was so much easier for the author to describe the characters that they were speaking in Korean. I swear, MOST of the author's readers can't also read a single character.
Third, the main character's character was not justified. Because she described herself as this quiet, uncaring, uninterested girl but there's a lot going on in her mind. She's very talkative and she knows A LOT. And those words are opposite of each other. Is the author even serious about that? What the heck was that? Did she wear a make-up just like McDonalds? Coz if she did, I won't ask anymore. But if you picture her as a pretty woman, WOW.
I want to know what make-up she's using. I'm gonna use it, too. Fifth, very unrealistic timeline and plot. She's sixteen if I remember correctly. And sometime in her past, she's a gangster.
And that was exactly 10 years ago. How old is she then? Well, my math skills aren't that perfect but I can subtract and add. And the result was 6! At 6 yrs old, she's already a gangster? I can't even remember what I'm doing when I was 6 yrs old!!! Highschool stuff is cheesy but I didn't really believe in their "romance". There's no further emotion aside from flirting. Yes, the words were there.
The "I love you" and "I love you, too" stuff. But what I'm saying is that the words didn't justify the actions. I didn't see that in the story. The romance was "pushed and made" when it should be "grown and nourished".
I guess I can say that I'm a hater because of what I wrote above but this story shouldn't be on shelves. It was a mess. And it deserves to be polished. Over a million reads on Wattpad shouldn't be the basis of publishing books but that right must've taken with responsibility.
The author should've checked and corrected the errors because it will leave a mark in the industry for a long time
