Responses to Option A
1
Option A sounds more interesting and less over-sensationalized.
2
The very first sentence here grabs my attention.
3
it sounds more intriguing
4
This sounds so much more interesting than option B.
5
I like choice A because there is more of an air of mystery about it. Option B seems to be more flat out and uncreative. Choice A is captivating and makes me interested and want to read the book to see what it is about.
6
I like the suspense of this one just a tad more
7
A flows better.
8
I like the premise of B better, but A actually has proper grammar and syntax.
9
This one sounds a little better to me. The other sounds too similar to many other books I've read.
10
Good choice and nice tupics
11
I feel like Option A is a lot more mysterious than Option B, which makes it more intriguing. Option B seems like a typical romance novel where one person has an affair, etc.
12
flows more naturally
13
The. Short. One. Word. Sentence. thing. Is. Done. Truth is messy is much more drawing-in.
14
It seems more mysterious and open ended.
15
A makes more sense overall
16
SOUNDS MORE SCANDALOUS
17
Option A is a lot more appealing because of the complete sentences. The partial sentences in B make it seem like a click-bait headline.
18
It makes you want to read to find out more
19
A sounds more mysterious while B just sounds generic.
20
I am an avid reader. I definitely prefer A. I don't like the format of B nor what it is saying.
21
It sounds more grammatically correct, and I like the way the blurb flows better than the other one. I would pick this one to keep reading a little more of.
22
I like the fact that it starts with a bold statement.
23
It peaks my interest
24
A is more personal.
Responses to Option B
1
This one gets me more ready to read and anticipate what will happen.
2
Sounds very exciting and intriguing
3
the long sentence "will truth revealed..." doesn't flow well.
4
Because it's a shorter, faster description, it makes it sound like the book will contain intrigue and mystery. It makes the book sound more exciting to read. So my choice is B.
5
I think option A is too vague. I like the more specific references (i.e. career and marriage) in B.
6
Choice A just does not make sense to me I have read it over and over and I am just not sure what it means so I prefer choice B
7
It puts more questions in my head to check out.
8
It gives a slightly better idea of the plot of the book and it's themes.
9
ooo B, sign me up to read this. It's very intriguing
10
Choice B leaves the reader in a lot of suspense.
11
This option sounds more provocative and intriguing to me.
12
Sounds more interesting.
13
it could end either of their careers not just his
14
B has far more impact in A. Stronger words and even though they are abrupt, they have risen my curiosity level.
15
I've always thought that politicians hides things from us so it will be interesting to read more about this.
16
more mysterious. It doesnt give away too much
17
That sounds so good! I want to read this book.
18
The description is more intriguing, more optimistic and more open ended which adds suspense.
19
I feel like Option B gives a more broad overview of the different topics the book is about and with that i find myself more drawn to that book than the other.
20
Option B seems more concise and attention grabbing
21
Option B builds suspense and interest.
22
It's concise and attention-grabbing. The other one is too long. It lost my interest.
23
Option B drew me in more than option A.
24
I feel like B is a little hackneyed, but A seems generic and a bit dull.
25
sounds very complicated which I like and very emotional. There sounds like there is a lot of suspense, and a real stay up all night, page turner.
26
I like B better than A because it gives a little more detail and makes me more likely to want to read this book.
