Responses to Option A
1
Option A appears to be darker, and more mysterious. It has a more intriguing vibe.
2
Option A has more information.
3
I like A better because it draws you in right away by telling you what the book is about. A lot more appealing than B for getting my attention.
4
Sounds more dramatic and interesting
5
A sounds more interesting to me.
6
Utterly important that you named all of the heroes. In B, you've got 2 heroes - because the others aren't important enough to get a name.
7
I like the descriptions of the different places, it is an easy read that sets up a plot that leaves you curious about the book.
8
It's a little more compact than the other option.
9
A is ore succinct
10
Choice A is better
11
IT HAD A MORE WHIMSICAL DESCRIPTION. IT DIDN'T GIVE AWAY ANY OF THE STORY BUT MADE ME WANT TO READ THE BOOK.
12
The other one sounds more generic.
13
It starts off with good action and enough information to draw a scene in your mind.
14
A laid out the story better without spoiling it. B tried too hard.
15
I like that it introduces characters in the introduction and then goes to explain an intro to the plot.
16
I prefer A because it is more descriptive.
17
It was setup more to capture the readers attention, but honestly I think they both need work.
18
The part about the secret organization made it sound more intriguing.
19
Option B is written so poorly and cliche-ridden. Option A is much, much better at painting a picture and drawing in the reader vs a sloppy synopsis (which option B is)
20
I think option A is more clear and well written and would make me want to read more.
21
I liked the more descriptive language in this one more because it was easier to envision what had happen to the characters and the title at the top is more interesting.
22
The characters are introduced in the first paragraph
23
This one makes me want to learn more about the book
24
Option B sounds too much like a movie trailer.
25
Drew me in
26
I choose A because its gives more details. It tells who, what , when and how and that is something that peaks my interest.
27
title at the top makes description seem more official
28
The first few words of B are very intricite and bore me right away. I think A is more simply written, and by using the first names instead of their whole name of the characters, it makes them more personable and seem more like the teenagers they are.
29
I felt A gave much more description of what the book was about
30
I like this description because it seems much more exciting.
31
It is a clearer description.
32
I prefer A because it starts right off with intriguing action. It gives you a hint of what the book would be about.
33
Blurbs in B are a bit trite.
34
description is more interesting
35
This one makes it seem more personal by starting out talking about the group of friends.
36
More adjectives in description. Looked like not as dry of a read.
37
I like the narration better
38
The story has more detailed information and has more of a suspenseful feel.
39
I feel like it doesn't oversell the book as much.
40
A more descriptive book description.
41
Sounds more mysterious and thrilling. B
42
i like the sound of this better
43
I chose A because it seems to be a more comprehensive description.
44
The details of the major groups of characters and events make it more likely that a reader will want to know more by reading the book.
45
Knowing about the cabal first takes away from the rest of the plot. (A) is structured in a way that is more intriguing and is also clearer to read.
46
A kept me reading until the end. It sounds more enticing.
47
Option A is exciting and really got me interested in the story.
48
A gives just enough of a taste to draw the reader in. B has spoilers that give away details that I would prefer to discover on my own while reading.
Responses to Option B
1
It is more concise, which is better.
2
B is more interesting starting from the beginning while A is really wordy and uses a wider vocabulary only some will enjoy in their leisure time
3
first 2 lines drew me in immediately.
4
the shorter look is more likely to be read
5
name dropping at the end seems better.
6
it was easier to read
7
Seems more interesting
8
flows a bit better
9
short and same description
10
I think B read more smoothly. A seemed disjointed to me.
11
I don't like the seemingly-unconnected events described in A; it makes it feel scattered and unclear what the book is actually about.
12
It sounds pretty stupid, but this one is a little more interesting.
13
This one sounds better right away.
14
It's generally better formatted visually, and is easier to read.
15
The words get me excited
16
It's much more concise and enticing. Option A was cumbersome to read.
17
I think the beginning of the description is a more interesting.
18
I like the saying at the end.
19
Its short and sweet compared to A. The words are more descriptive and catchy.
20
Feels like it's pulling me into the story more, like I'm a part of it.
21
I find this more alluring.
22
A has a whole paragraph on the plane wreck, which is probably a tiny part of the story. B has more infor, and sounds more immediate and personal.
23
B - because it is more coherent.
24
More intriguing and mysterious, without giving away too much of the plot.
25
I like the focus on two main characters and the tagline at the end of the description. Option A is a little long.
26
It sounds epic.
27
It's shorter and uses more suspenseful language than A.
28
B has a better opening that draws me in more.
29
I prefer B because it's shorter. It gives away less of the story than A. The book sounds a bit young for me, but I would buy it for a teen who likes this type of story.
30
This one makes it sounds like all is doomed.
31
This description is far more concise and I feel like it gives away less of the plot, it is straight to the point but still gives the elements that make it interesting.
32
Jag, Kody, Tegan, and Aari are the stupidest, most made up names I have ever seen. I already hate them
33
Choice A uses too many descriptive words that seem like they may just be filling space: hidden, mysterious, astonishing. I can the mood that is sought after but it just lays it on a bit too thick.
34
I LOVE THE FIRST LINE!
35
just reads easier , it is sounds easier to follow
36
The "powerful cabal with ancient roots plots the end of humankind" part sounds very interesting. That line is the most interesting part of these descriptions.
37
It had me more gripped by its tone.
38
Choice A seems like a string of click bait sentences one after the other. Choice B actually gives a brief story in complete, flowing sentences.
39
It's more mature and forward with what it's trying to convey. The ending makes a huge impact on the whole description.
40
Catches my attention just a little bit more.
41
The other one feels a little too long.
42
Option B provide a short and but effect summary. It outlines the main characters and gave a chilling quote at the end of the sypnosis without giving a way too much
43
This synopsis is great! Best one yet. It makes me feel like I'm in the middle of the action.
44
While both descriptions were enticing, Option B is a much more catchy back cover description. Especially with the short line to hook you at the beginning.
45
Option B is definitely more enticing than Option A because of the tagline of B. I want to know why the characters feel that their days are numbered.
46
Option b is more engaging and interesting and better written
47
It grabs the attention better.
48
The diction is well placed.
49
More vague and mysterious at the same time.
50
Choice A is giving too much information about the book. There is too much to read. Choice B almost makes me feel like i'm reading a transcription of a movie preview, it has just enough information to make me want to read the book.
51
It captures my interest better
52
This choice sounds interesting because it ends in a question implying that we do not know if these teenagers can live up to the ancient prophecy.
