Here's another Wattpad story- but it's incomplete so I can't truly rate it the way I view my other shorts and novels. The 4th Estate by Rio Rouge, is a violent masterpiece- I was very impressed, not to mention it's a 2015 winner on Wattpad. I don't know if a Watty is for a number of reads or for the quality, but either way, the story is different, good and violent.
I've never been a huge fan of Wattpad. I found many of the accounts filled with great ideas but written, excuted in a manner so poorly, I felt like a professional! And I'm not. I didn't come away with The 4th Estate, by Ekene Ugbaja (roi_rouge). This author carried a unique story and made it work. Other than a few errors, which I was warned about in advance, I found this book carefully thought out and told.
I did find it repetitive, but the author wanted the reader to truly understand the dangers, high and chasmic lows of The 4th. It was stressed how one didn't want to be in The 4th, not even those born there but could manage to thrive. One could thrive and easily be robbed or killed as well as look at a person. You could fight as with the David and Goliath reference. And so much more.
The story begins in a court room, representing himself as both protagonist and antagonist. There have been many murders, deserving murders. He's poetic, descriptive and overly confident but spraying perfume on a monster doesn't make it a rose. The man is vile, yet when you understand his background, you end up feeling sorta bad for him. You want to both hug him and slap him in cuffs and toss him beneath a prison! A good write can incite feelings like this.
I enjoyed The 4th Estate and if you're in to Wattpad, you should check it out!
