I find feature story writing to be one of the most interesting forms of writing to read. It is designed to draw the reader in and entertain him or her with the information that the writer is presenting.

I read a feature story, The Ride of Your Life, the other day that was entertaining and informative. It was discussing how theme parks are a controlled environment that are built to move the guests along at a certain space and feel specific emotions. There is a science involved with how the parks are constructed.

I enjoyed the introduction of the article and the writer did a good job of drawing readers in so they will continue reading. It is written in a way so the reader can easily understand what the writer is trying to convey. It also did a good job of sticking to the same tone and theme throughout the entire story. I thought it was an interesting topic that is not well known and it affects a large majority of people.
