Our twenty-seventh story for our Community Book Club was reviewed by two people, and all the scores will be an average. The book was…

Clue: Red Eyed Cat, by RachelleFaucet (@RachelleFaucet)
It’s a mystery and here’s the link.
About: Parson Gold, a lonely private eye, made it his mission to discover the truth behind the red eyed cat and the string of murders that follows it.

This story was recommended by @aprilish!



First Impression (Cover/title/summary)

Rating: 4.95
Loved the cover and description, they were really well designed, and they resembled that of a mystery film. … This is exactly the type of story this reader would be interested in and it was actually in their list of stories to read. However, there was one error that hindered the summary.


The story (Content and Flow)

Rating: 4.4
This is a fantastically interesting story, although the one tiny thing that ruins it is the reader messages. You don’t need to write things like “body drop” and “ominous sound”, the directing is superb, we can actually see and hear that happening.
This part is explained, has the reader completed the chapter. That’s why I ask people to review complete chapters, please! - There was one scene that left the other reader a bit confused. When Mrs Landchester and Parson arrive at the body, why is it still there? Usually, the police would take it in and the coroner would examine it, even if the private eye was working on it at the same time. Sometimes there are very brief scenes that seem a little unnecessary and short. They do wish there could have been a trigger warning for the suicide scene, despite it being in a dream. They stopped reading after that because scenes like that affect them, and they’re sure other readers too. Besides all of that, the plot was really interesting and it left them wanting to read more!


Characters

Rating: 4.5
Superbly written! … One reader was curious as to why Ms Landchester trusts Parson with stuff that could easily incriminate her. Besides that, I found the characters very unique and personal, especially Parson, who is a hard character to flesh out.


Visually (The directing)

Rating: 5
What a great opening, it must have taken forever to do. Well done. The transitions between scenes are also good, with the same red running through the episodes. Absolutely flawless! … The other reader loved the filter, it really put them in the mood of a detective story. They really appreciated using the silhouettes over the red background, that too was reminiscent of a detective show.


Language (Grammar)

Rating: 4.8
Mild mistakes with incorrect word forms used and a couple of weirdly worded sentences. Another one, it’s “dinner”, not “diner”, as a diner is a type of restaurant. A few missing commas too.


Choices

Rating: 0
Choices, there aren’t really any. Readers like choices because it helps them to feel involved. Plus, despite this story being amazing, it was a contest entry, and entries won’t win without proper choices.


1.5 was the average number of episodes read by the two reviewers.

It was great! They wished they could have kept going. … This story was really dark and incredibly awesome, but some choices would have been good too.

Final Book Club score is … 3.94
