Hey there MandlynProductions, Edelweiss here for a review!
This was something new and interesting! From what I gathered the story takes place in futuristic times? Also it is about a 16 year old girl who is trying to order clothes but is hacked and murdered in her own household. It's a very sad story, but the way you have wrought kept me reading, terrific writing style by the way!
But, I had a hard time understanding what was happing because it was so confusing. I had to go back and reread the story several times. Particularly the ending, I think this can be easily fixed if you would tell the reader who is speaking. At the end you say there is a picture of Hal 9000, but what is Hal 9000? Overall I think this very creative, and I think you have great potential! Keep up the wonderful job!

I just noticed this is a sequel, huh I guess that explains a lot!





If you want to know who HAL 9000 is, try the pretty rectangle at the top of the page, and type three letters and four numbers, in other words, use the search bar. Or look at my profile picture for around 2 seconds.

Hi there, I remember reading your previous work - as your style is very distinct. So I thought I'd write you a review.

Beginning with your style, I find it intriguing. It's very logical and mimics technology in an effective way - being very step by step processed I suppose. It's incredibly unique and I haven't seen anything like it so I guess you should keep it up. One thing I will say though, I feel that due to your blunt sorta processed talk it's difficult to connect with your story. I feel like there was no/little build up to the hacker... You say the ""(The screen now shows a distorted version of the default version of the default hill background of Systelin -99)"" and the bit about the woman is good too.. I just find your tone a little cold.. And i guess that's what it is supposed to be.. but I feel like it's hard to relate to - I'm not sure how to advise you on that sorry.

However, I clicked on this because I love horror! Written one myself if ya wanna check it out

Watching

And I feel like your plot line was very good in this respect - I mean, I wasn't scared because you haven't really added in much emotion or sensual feeling to make me scared.. But I like how you've introduced your character - the villain- quite casually yet at the same time he seems quite sinister. What I want to know is who is controlling this computer? I am a little confused on that - and if you have mentioned it before then it needs mentioning again for reminder. It seems like you probably wouldn't want to - due to your style- but I would highly encourage more description. As I said before, there needs to be something more relatable I believe.

However, in some respects I do like how formatted it is.. with

""""Blood splatter.jpeg ready

Replacement pink.jpeg ready

Cgswblde.vmv ready

Female scream.mp3 ready

Organ.jpeg ready"""

made me chuckle a little bit but I admire how unusal it is - the way you say things.

Overall, I liked this. But if I am honest I feel l need more description if I am to connect to a story :) . You can obviously write really well so - congrats. I hope I could help you :)



Lauren :D

Of course it is to be blunt, humans are predictable and boring so I got rid of the human part of the story.

Woah. I spent my own time writing a review for you, if you're not going to appreciate it then I won't bother in future. I couldn't care less about how you thought my grammar was in this review, I was just trying to get my point across... I was trying to help. I'm sorry if I've offended you.

I apologize, I was not aware of your sensitivity, I was just trying to give the best advice.
