Whilst I am not a regular Daily Star reader (by that I mean that I do not buy it every single day), however, it is one of my 'favourites' when I do buy a newspaper (once a week/fortnight etc).
The Daily Star is a British Tabloid Magazine which is out Monday-Saturday. It is widely available at (all, I think?) newsagents and supermarkets etc, for just 30p. Whilst the paper is probably aimed at men (say aged 18+, due to the page 3 content) I due think that the paper is also 'female friendly' and so I would say that there is something for everyone to enjoy, whether it is current affairs, celebrity, real life stories, sport etc, you will find it all here.
The Daily Star features both long and short stories. I prefer it like this as I find that there is nothing worse than a paper full of 'long' articles which aren't 'fun' to read. I like the short articles because they are 'short' and 'sweet'. However, I tend to like the 'longer' stories too, especially as they tend to be straight to the point and don't drag on and on like Broadsheet type papers do. I also like how this newspaper also features serious news stories as well as 'fun' stories.
Being a huge celebrity fan, I love that celebrities play a huge part in this newspaper; I love seeing what they've been up to etc and so if you like celebrity gossip then you will love this newspaper. I also like how there is a mixture of stories and celebrities as well as on 'normal people'. These stories certainly make interesting reads.
The newspaper consists of simple language which means that it is easy to read. The use of simple language means that you do not have to think about what you are reading too much which means that it is a great newspaper for reading whilst chilling out.
There isn't a huge amount of adverts in this newspaper which is great news. One thing which I did notice however is the fact that the adverts that are in the newspaper are ones which the readers can actually relate to; such as supermarket offers etc.
~ * Features * ~
There are some great features in this newspaper. A lot of them are the same-type ones you would find in gossip magazines; gossip columns with all the latest celebrity news and gossip, as well as another column called 'Play List' which features all the latest music news - being a huge music fan, I love this.
Another section which I like is an article called ' Text Maniacs' which consists of a load of texts which readers have sent in. Some of these can be quite comical. I enjoy this section as it lets you see what the rest of Britain are thinking and how certain 'news issues' are affecting others.
The TV guide I find is useful as it allows me to see what's on and also helps me plan my evening. For example if I know a good programme is on at 10pm then I will make sure that I am in before that time etc. So this I find to be very useful in helping me plan my 'evenings' (around the telly!).
I find that like most newspapers, as this paper goes on it gets boring as it tends to feature articles that I am not interested in I.e sports. However, of course that is just my opinion and so someone who loves sports will be in their glory among the sports pages.
A lot of the stories are accompanied by photographs; great quality coloured photos which I think is great.
For just 30p, I think that this is excellent value for money as there is plenty of reading to be had with this newspaper.
If you are after a newspaper which will update you on all the latest news as well as including a bit of fun (celebrity gossip, horoscopes etc, weather, horoscopes etc), then I would recommend this newspaper.
Thanks for reading!
