What is Review text ?

A review text is a flexible genre which may vary according to the nature of the creative work being worked on, the intended audience, and the aspects of the work considered worth commenting on.

The purpose of review text is to analyze and evaluate some creative works, and to inform people about its strengths and weaknesses.

The basic structure of
a review text consists of four parts or components, they are:

1. Title

2. Identification of the work
  • The name of the creative work which is the subject of the review.
  • What kind of work it is (such as film, movie, novel, research investigation, books, cassette etc)
  • Its author(s), publisher or producer, and date of production. Not all these details are necessary.
3. Evaluation of the work
The reviewer describes particular aspects of the work, and offers their opinion regarding them, their quality, effectiveness, and so forth.

4. Conclusions/ recommendations

Example Of Review Text :
A Site from Reog Boy
It has been appearing. It calls its self gusblake. It is a site of a boy from Ponorogo. If you have not known Ponorogo yet, it is one of regencies in East Java, Indonesia. Recently, this town has appeared as public issues because Reog Ponorogo, one of its local genius traditional dances got on the stage in Malaysia as its icon. I am not going to talk about this traditional culture. Instead of it, a site which has been built by a young boy with with this local reog spirit has attracted me much.
This site is trying to attract to the world. With its physical design, it is simple but easily eyes catcher. Each of the pages is divided into three columns with different size. The left wider column is for main content. The central positioned column is seemingly designed for monetizing and SEO tools. The rest column which takes place in the right side is taken place by archives, content summary and blogging community
This site concentrates to several topics, namely health, information, tips, trick, thought, personal sharing, technology, refreshing, travel and other topics. The author named Sofyan tries to present these topics seriously but in nice way.
