The Despicable Guy is really good. The lines... AWESOME! Though some of the lines were derived from other books/stories, it's fine... i mean, hey, that's normal! even those great and famous authors borrow lines from others, you know. I fell inlove with the characters. Omg. My friends and I got soooo addicted to this.. To the point that we can't stop talking about it. We can't go home without talking about the KEVJE vibes and all. One of my friends even used the main characters' name as her usern ...more

I didn't know there's The Despicable Guy on Goodreads!!! I've only read two stories on Wattpad, ever - The Despicable Guy (and all its related books) and She's Dating The Gangster. The Despicable Guy will forever remain to be that Tagalog Wattpad story that will never fail to make me giggle, bicycle in the air, punch my pillows, and make me want to throw my cellphone on the wall because of the kilig. I really love how realistic the story FELT especially with the setting and the language, giving ...more

Naghahanap ka ba ng istoryang kikiligin ka? Yung librong tatawa ka, maiinis, magagalit at sisigaw kasabay ng mga karakter sa istorya? Yung kwentong masarap basahin dahil nakakatuwa ang usapan ng mga bida? Pwes, para sa’yo ‘to.

December 2011 nang una ko ‘tong mabasa sa WP. Take note, ito yung pinakaunang tagalong love story na binasa ko on-line. Hindi kasi siya katulad ng ibang istorya na after two chapters nakakasawa o nakakaumay na. Hindi lang siya pakilig, may lalim din kahit sabihin nating tee

I read the published novel.

What I didn't like:
--Awkward minimal grammar errors (especially the usage of had/have)
--Inconsistency of Jersey's character (one moment she's saying she hates Paul, then she likes him, or she feels kilig because of Kevin, then she's mad at him. I get that it's supposed to be an inner debate of feelings but it was not executed well and most of the time it leaves me confused in a bad way.)
--That part where Kevin ate something that he's allergic to. Sobrang babaw naman ng

Ngayon ko lang nakita na nandito pala sa Goodreads ang TDG!(hahaha :D) Para sakin,isa ito sa mga pinakamagandang stories na nabasa ko at deserve talaga na mai-publish. :)

Oo, nakakatuwa yung kwento ni Kevin at Jersey, nakakatawa at minsan medyo nakakakilig. Pero yun lang talaga siya. Isang kwento ng dalawang taong nagkakilala, nagkainisan at sa huli, nagkagustuhan. Nagustuhan ko naman yung kwento kahit papaano, kaso yun nga, medyo unrealistic ang story at wala namang nangyari bukod sa love story nila.

(1) Asan ba ang parents nila? Kahit na-explain naman na wala, nagatatrabaho or nasa abroad, mahirap parin paniwalaan na MIA lahat ng parental author

Hurray i liked the story! the plot was good, but i don't like it when kevin calls her devil woman. the happenings are so fast and stuff, it should've been collaborated more and i didn't really get kevin or jersey's looks because it they weren't described. and, first day of college, they were THAT close, unbelievable. and i think changing the script for the play is kinda embarassing especially the shawarma girl part, lol. You shouldn't have added Kevin's POV they were just really quick. And the g ...more
This book made me laugh out loud.
The plot was good; it was fast-paced.
The characters are funny, and Kevin is adorable.

A copy was provided from Pop Fiction because I'm a judge at Filipino Reader's Choice Awards

This is a load of BEEP! I love the idea of the story but then the author started making things a little bit awkward for her characters. Most of the blame should be on the writing style, I could not get into any of their heads. They were supposedly college students but they act like they're in high school sometimes even younger than that. *head desk*

There were lots of cute scenes that make you go awww but

This was a quick read for me. The story was not too light nor heavy. Although, I did enjoy several moments in the book, I kind of lost interest halfway through. Also, I didn't really connect much with all the characters, but I did find some appealing. Over-all, I'll give this book 3 stars!

To be honest, I don't know what to say. It is good indeed. I love the interactions of The Despicable Guy and The Devil Woman.

Una sa lahat, di talaga ako nagbabasa ng mga tagalog na libro. Basta, ayoko lang (angal? XD) tapos nung sinabi nung friend ko na " Toh, try mo tong story na to! Maganda yan! swear!" Aba ay di agad ako naniwala! hahaha, pero nakaraan ang mga araw, binasa ko rin. Wala kasi akong magawang productive nung mga araw na yun eh. hehehe

Tapos, ayun! Unang chapters pa lang, tawang tawa na ako! As in! This seems to be a typical story kung babasahin mo lang yung unahan, o kaya makikinig sa mga kaibigan mong
I've read this way back 2011, even before it became viral in wattpad. I was one of the very first reader of Ms. Leng and look where this online fan fiction is now?

I have to admit that it was another cliche story, but I loved the realistic approach of the novel. The readers aren't deprive of the different aspect of life such as family, school, job and romantic relationship. It was a great combination of what life is all about.

Romance? It has a slow burn between the main characters. They always bi

This is one of the few books I read (as in finished until the end) on Wattpad way back year 2011 and I remember getting all giddy with my highschool friend over this. Back then, it was not so easy for me to get all kilig at these kind of stories but I was hooked up to it because it's irresistibly refreshing. Also, the characters were so engaging. I loved every part of this locally written story. All that's been written felt so real, and especially that the language used was Tagalog, damang-dama ...more

Sa lahat ng wattpad story na nabasa ko, ito yung pinaka makatotohanan. Rock na rock ka Leng. Kahit minsan ang sarap nang sabunutan ng KevJe, okay pa rin. Paulit ulit ako, pero talagang nakakatuwa kasi makatotohanan siya unlike other stories na sobrang yaman nung guy na porsche o lamborghini basta yung mga ganun ganun. Well except lang dun sa gift na sapatos ni Kev at nung pumunta pa siya ng Japan pero at least!
Basta maganda siya. Yii galenggg
The story was good and nice and sweet. But the thing is, some of the dialogue is NOT the author's own writing. She actually "borrowed" lines from Drama Queenby Abi Aquino. I really feel that this work is "sayang". Her ideas were good. I just hoped she tried to make her own dialogue.

KevJe Duo! <3 <3 Nagsisisi ako kasi ngayon ko lang binasa 'tong kwento na 'to. Sarap ulit-ulitin :") Though the author borrowed some lines from the other books, but hey, she's giving some credits! ;)From this story, Si Jicker talaga pinaka naging bias ko :'3 Crush ko eh <3 emergehd. Sarap makipagrelasyon sa nagbabakla-baklaan hihi. Kaso Blanche na siya eh 3 :( Pero enjoy tlaga 'to! Favorite~

This is one of the best Wattpad Stories that I've read so far.
Very Cute, Funny and light. I only read the published version, i was actually expecting for a cliche plot, Typically Characters and other *O.A-thing coz ya' know most of the stories in Wattpad are like that. Maybe i can say that this one's worth to read.

I've been told that the Tagalog version was better. Pfft. Aren't they always? Hopefully I could still get a soft copy of the Tagalog version of this one. But over all, I really liked it. :) I need the second book. ASAP

I give this book a 3.5 stars. Although it was a cliche of Korean dramas we watch nowadays it was still good. I hope that the author can improve her writings and I bit more of feelings to the characters.
