Bahasa Inggris Kelas 12 : Menulis Resensi

RG Squad, pernahkah kamu melihat teks ulasan (review text) yang ada dalam majalah? Atau guru di sekolah mungkin juga pernah memberikan tugas menulis resensi? Biasanya yang dibahas mengenai buku atau film. Nah, tidak sembarang melakukan review, teks ulasan harus memiliki struktur (structure) tertentu. Mau tahu seperti apa? Simak tulisan di bawah ini, yuk!

1. Introduction

Jika bertemu orang asing, apakah kamu berani langsung mengajaknya main ke rumah? Tidak mungkin 'kan? Pasti harus kenalan dulu! Begitu pula dengan review text, harus diberikan gambaran umumnya dulu tentang sesuatu yang akan dibahas. Kamu bisa membahas tentang nama, manfaat, siapa pemilik karyanya, dan lain sebagainya.

2. Evaluation

Bagian berikutnya, kamu bisa menjelaskan detail dari buku/film yang diulas. Misalnya, membahas keunikan atau kualitas karyanya. Kamu tinggal melakukan pengamatan saja memberikan komentar penilaian. Eits, tapi jangan terlalu banyak deskripsi, ya.

3. Interpretation

Bagian ini biasanya menjelaskan pandanganmu terhadap karya atau benda yang diulas. Kamu bisa melakukan interpretasi dengan membandingkan karya lain yang sejenis untuk memperkuat pandanganmu. Selain itu, tambahkan juga dengan kelebihan dan kekurangan jika dibandingkan dengan buku/film lain.

4. Summary

Setelah memberikan interpretasi, akhiri tulisan dengan memberikan kesimpulan. Jadi, kamu bisa memberi konklusi apakah karya atau benda yang diulas bernilai baik atau tidak.

Orientation 

I absolutely love the Harry Potter series.

Evaluasi 1 

I have to say that of all of the books, however, this was not my favorite.

Evaluasi 2 

When the series began, it was as much of a "feel good" experience as a huge mug of hot cocoa. The stories were bright, fast-paced, intriguing, and ultimately satisfying.

Interpretation 

Order of the Phoenix is a different kind of book. In some instances this works, you feel a whole new level of intensity and excitement by the time you get to the end. I was truly moved by the last page. Other times the book just has a slightly dreary, depressing feel. The galloping pace of the other books has slowed to a trot here, and parts of it do seem long, as if we're reading all about Harry "just hanging out" instead of having his usual adventures. Reading in detail about Harry cleaning up an old house, for example, and I'm not very interested in doing it or reading about other people doing it. A few other changes in this book - the "real" world comes much more in to play rather than the fantasy universe of the previous books, and Harry has apparently been taken off his meds. I know that he had a lot to be grumpy in this book, especially with being a teenager and all, but the sudden change in his character seemed too drastic. He goes from being a warm-hearted, considerate person to someone who will bite his best friend's heads off over nothing. It just seemed like it didn't fit with his character, like he turned into a walking cliché of the "angry teen" overnight.

Summary 

The "real" story seemed to happen in the last 1/3 of the book, and this part I loved. I actually liked the ending as sad as it was. It packed a punch and it made me care about the story even more. Still a really good book, with some editing it would have been great.
