It may seem like an easy task to write a reaction paper when it is assigned. Now, after you have put it off until the last minute, you find out that even though it is based on your opinion, it is much harder to complete than you originally thought. A reaction paper is designed to express your response to a piece of writing. It is a tool for analyzing the piece. You will need to show your reactions to a certain article or book, the author’s focus, and how it was written.
When you have to go further than “I liked it” or “I didn’t like it”, the paper gets a bit more challenging. You need to expand on your ideas and create a paper that expresses the information in a logical and well-organized manner.
