Hi all, im new to this forum so im not entirely sure what im doing, but if someone could help me that'd be really great. I just wanted to know, out of the following two paragraphs, which do people think is the best description of a town? They're extracts from two of my books, and are about different towns that are just passed through in the story, so are by no means important. I have my suspicions, but would really like some confirmation, so please, if you have a few minutes on your hands please give them a read and let me know which you think is best! First Extract: Soon enough, the group had met like usual outside the hotel where the contrast with the town of Terra became apparent. The town itself, was a beautiful and charming Mediterranean village of stone and whitewashed walls. And it was indeed surrounded by the system of trenches and bridges which prevented the town expanding so each building was packed tightly together making the streets narrow and overshadowed. Because of this there were street lamps scattered in the streets making vehicle travel impossible. However in the middle of this beautiful town the giant casino hotel lay. The building was metal and glass and the architecture was all wrong. It stood out like a sore thumb and the group had a sneaking suspicion the locals felt the same way. But it wasn’t their problem, they didn’t plan to be here too long. Second Extract: By that evening, the group could see from the top of a hill the town known as Fhlinas, it was a grey, country town with many small houses and structures scattered around a valley floor, through the centre ran a river that headed west to the ocean and over this, only two bridges joined the two halves of the town. The town lay peaceful and serene with very few people roaming the streets in brightly coloured, middle class type clothing. As the six entered they aimed to locate an inn or hotel and did so with relative ease. The pub Inn, called the ‘Haymaker’ was the biggest building in the town, save for the church-type building at the northern edge of the town, thanks to its steeple. The pub was of a thick grey stone and the streets around were lined with cobbles. thanks for your time!
