What makes a story great?

HumourHumour:- Keeps the reader hooked-Makes the reader feel like they are involved and the characters are talking to them (which makes them feel special)-E.g. Lewis carroll ‘Through the looking glass’ when the two queens are asking Alice if she can subtract a bone from a dog

Language suitable for the age group Language unsuitable for the age group isn't used because: -people don’t want to have to stop reading to go and look up what a word means-if the reader has to keep going over a sentence and unpicking all the complex words to get any meaning out of it they won't be motivated to keep reading-if the language is too young for the age group the reader will get bored and may find the book extremely irritating -E.g. Lewis carroll ‘Through the looking glass’ `Always speak the truth -- think before you speak -- and write it down afterwards”(this extract was chosen because the languige is simple enough that any one can understand it however it is not too childish)

Your text her

Gripping plot/suspense/ plot twist gripping plots, suspence and plot twists:-keep the reader interested -makes the reader imagine they are the one doing what the character does (E.g. rule breaking, rebelion) -E.g. Alice Rasch’s story ‘The Fall’ the doctor was not a murderer, he had injected the sister because she had asked

Characters are relatable/someone the reader will likeunrelatabel charicters mean:-If the reader doesn’t relate to the character then they will not want to keep reading the book. -If the characters are unlikable the reader will not read on (there are a lot of books out there, if theydon’t like yours they have a lot of other options)-E.g. Lewis Carrel ‘through the looking glass’ Alice is a likable character who is quirky and interesting
