Since nobody is willing to do this from my friends circle, and I'm horrible in English, I thought I'd come here for advice. I'm not saying to write it for me or anything, just edit it, or revise, etc. The book is titled Carrie by Stephen King (It was his first published book). Oh, the entry needs to be a response to the question, not a plot summary, as it says in the directions. The question is "If you were recommending this book to someone else, how would you describe the way the author writes (His/her writing style)? What do you like about it; what don't you like about it?" Here's my Journal Entry: In the book Carrie by Stephen King, the writing style that is applied throughout the novel is an intriguing one. Instead of using chapters, as in the norm, he used quotes from other novels and passages to differentiate between chapters. Additionally, King uses many descriptive words, as well as disturbingly detailed adjectives to give the reader a better image in their mind. Stephen King purposely made his characters speak in a certain dialect in order to exemplify the effect of how people speak in that section of the country. He also spent a lot of time on describing how each object was placed and looked within its surroundings. The best feature that I liked about his writing style was that he kept the reader entertained throughout the duration of the book. On the other hand, what I didn’t enjoy about his writing style was that he was too narrative, and there wasn’t enough action. The book was also very graphic in some parts, such as the vivid description of the menstrual cycle, and wasn’t made for people with a weak stomach. All suggestions are welcome, bad or good. Preferably, if it's bad, tell me what I did wrong so I can fix it. Also, I wouldn't mind if any of you didn't like one of the sentences, and re-wrote it better for me . Oh, it needs to be about 300 words, but so far I've got about 180.
