It was recently brought to my attention to look into a magazine called, Slice of Life. I was sent the second issue first, so I started there.
The story was about a young boy cheating on his exam and the consequences that followed. Since it didn’t taken place in America, it was interesting to see how a different culture reacted to it. The story explored not only consequences from the teacher, but also from the parents at home.
Overall, the story had an interesting concept. I wished the characters were more developed. It was filled with dialogue, but it didn’t have much inner thoughts from the main character. I also wished the different culture concepts were explored more too. The ending did seem a bit abrupt for me as well.
The magazine issue also came with a crossword puzzle, personality quiz, and poetry. I thought the poetry was lovely, almost better than the main story itself. The poetry had a nice style and a good common emotion that many people can relate to.
Overall, I think it’s alright to check out. It’s a quick five minute read for everything, nothing too time consuming.
