She's Dating the Gangster is a Philippine coming-of-age romantic comedy drama film based on the best Pop Fiction book of the same name originally published on cidadessustentaveis.info's Teen Talk section and it was popularized on Wattpad by Bianca Bernardino (pen name: SGwannaB). This kind of magical thinking just doesn't mesh well with the real medical. She's Dating the Gangster has ratings and reviews. Carleen Ligon said : At first, I was hesitant in reading it since it was in Filipino(tagalog) WALA AKONG PAKIALAM KUNG UNG WATTPAD VERSION MAN OH UNG PR A lot of my friends recommended this so I thought that I may give this story a chance. 'She's Dating The Gangster' became popular through Wattpad. . When asked what made her say yes to the movie version, Bianca said it was I thought that maybe it would be nice to see Athena and Kenji on a big screen.
Probably my hatest parts: And Kenji was all like " Yeah sure you can die anytime. You won't see me again. That was probably an awful way to end a relationship with someone especially your ex who is dying. I know Abigail is the least favorite here, but Kenji's still arrogant personality threw me off a bit here. I thought he changed.
Still he's an undeveloped character. I rushed to his side. Kenji was all wrapped in a blanket and shaking violently. How do you shake violently?

Is it with eyes going white? Anyways, when I read the part "violently" I already imagined him in a convulsion state. How do you show "violently" at that part? And to think it was just a high fever Usually it would take about half a day for a person to have a fever after getting soaked in wet clothes and cold rain.
You don't happened to have a fever in a snap of a finger. The characters were not interesting. You have this bad boy falls in love with the new girl in school and blah, blah, blah. You get the picture.

It's mostly a copy-pasted characters from Kdramas such as "Boys over Flowers" and some American chick flicks. Athena Dizon- A flat character. Aside from not really letting us know her perspective in life, it lacked realism specifically when it comes to her emotions.
Most are just rants. Sure, there were phrases such as "I cried I blinked back my tears", but emotions aren't only based on actions.
They are also revealed internally- on her thoughts, opinions, realizations and feelings. That's why there was no connection between Athena and I, because her thoughts were limited. It was hard reading her which shouldn't be if she's Bella Swan, that is lol because First person are the most intimate with readers since both parties know what the character is feeling throughout the story.
Also, Athena which should be, again is not very observant to the things around her and how her life goes. Also, she has illness, but how could I feel sympathy at her when the author doesn't clearly know how to feel what it's like to be dying.
I mean, I'm not saying I have a cancer and I'm dying or that you should really experience something to write about it, no I was like all, "Okay, she's sick.
Can't the book SHOW more of how it's like to be dying? I'd probably switch reading to "A walk to remember. Perfect in a way he's popular, handsome, good athlete Goo Jun Pyo, is that you?
He has flaws okay, but not something important, not important in bringing up the story. He doesn't have weakness as well at page 30, where in he got in a brawl with a guy and afterwards, he had no any scratch or bruise at all It still bothers me why he didn't explain throughout the story the reason why he and Abigail broke up in the first place.
And the reason why he took a job as a waiter. I don't know but it seems that his type of character are overused by other writers as well on Wattpad. Why people love bad boys, huh? I think it was the word "hindi". Instead of using the correct spelling, she used "hinde" and it's so annoying to read. There were too many imperfections of this story but I won't mention them all. Most importantly, I felt like this "book" doesn't have a plot. Okay, it has one but it was too confusing and indirect.
I really resisted the urge to just leave the story unfinished. I really wanted to stop reading. But I wanted to see what everyone was talking about.
I thought that with every chapter that I finish, the story would at least progress and slowly develop to reach the climax and main conflict but there were too much "filler chapters".
A lot of chapter was unnecessary. This story shouln't have been published into a book. A book is at least clear, polished, and clean.Happy Break Up The Movie (2017 FULL MOVIE w/ English subs)
It was as if every chapter in this story was rushed. As if the author just thought of random scene to put in a chapter. To say that I am disappointed is an understatement. I really expected this story to be "good" but this story is really far from it.
