Curtis’s ideas and use characters are surprisingly very well used and described during the story. In the first pages of the book, the reader already gets hooked to the story and wants to continue on. The reader is always presented with new problems or ideas especially with a character like Bud. The type of writing always keeps the reader attached to the story. Curtis even achieved to put some humor during the story, which made me laugh. His story is very well constructed and logic. I like his choice of characters and the plot in general. I easily read the book and never got confused on his writing. I highly recommend people to read this book. Adults and children can read it even if Christopher Paul Curtis wrote books for kids. In the books 250 pages, it consists of a very good story and interesting characters.
I rate this book a 9/10. It was so amazing and I learned so much from this novel. I definitely recommend this book because it really opens your eyes to the troubles of this world, and families who are breaking apart. The reason why I didn’t give it a perfect score was because, at times I would get confused by the dialogue because the author didn’t fully write who was talking in a conversation. Other than that, it was a heartbreaking story that gave me a bigger perspective of this
I would recommend this book because it shows all the aspects of life and never makes you bored like other books that waste so much time describing something little and doesn’t get on with anything. This book is appropriate for teenagers and young adults as it has some inappropriate things and ideas like the rape case. This book links to my life by showing how racism is a concerning case like what’s happening now in many countries in the world not just about race but about religion and opinions. It also links to my life when I do things early and I get in trouble for that even though I’ve done something right not
This book is a very good book. It is not one of my favorite books, but it is in, or somewhat close to, the top ten list. It has an intriguing story and has some humor in it to make sure that it isn’t all mellow.
I think that this work is a very well put together book. Even though In the earlier questions I make it sound like a ten on ten this book is not. I rate this book a 9/10 for the soul reason that it was on a very directed path and you could the events that were going to happen before they did by just reading the book. Even the twist that the author put in were not that book which made some of the book predictable and who really wants a book in which they know everything that is going to happen.
Overall, the book is really good and sticks to those three main ideas of courage, weakness and truth throughout it. As both a reader and a writer (I write my own little novels) this book is really goods and i would recommend it to anyone who asks
Throughout the last week I have found myself evaluating the conflicts between the groups, the ask and the answer, Todd and the things he has done, and Todd and Viola. This book is very intriguing and interesting to me and I look forward to starting the next book in the series after I finish The Ask and the Answer. I would give myself a 9 out of 10 on this journal because I included all of my quotes and I incorporated all of the conflicts that occurred during this
I give it a 7.5/10.0 I love how they introduce Buck, at Judge Miller’s Place just soaking up some sun. I like this because it is just a peaceful start, foreshadowing a future event that will change Buck’s life. Then, all of a sudden, Manuel just snatches Buck while the whole family was away, which to me, is a bit of an expected event. I think it is expected, as the latter events in the story are so unexpected But further on, I like how they shock the reader by putting Buck through so much abuse, just in the first chapter! The man in the red sweater is probably my least favorite character in the chapter, as he bullied Buck by whacking him constantly with a golf club, which hurts extremely.
Incredible book! This is an extremely vibrant depiction of a young girl’s struggle. I enjoyed reading this story much more than anticipated. It has been some time since I last read something that kept me up late into the evenings. I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars.
I'm glad that I chose to read this after over a year sitting on my bookshelf. I'm not expected to give this more than 3 stars, though. The reasons I can deliver are because of the non-engaging characters, uninteresting magic system and lack of world building flaw.
My intentions when I review a book are never to tear down the author, but rather to share how a particular piece of literature affected me. For this reason I'd like to begin by sharing what I liked about the story. For starters, the food and literary references were fun! My husband fancies himself an "Iron Chef" so we watch a lot of cooking shows this helped me as I read. Another aspect I liked about the story was how remarkably human Reay's characters felt. They were selfish, fearful, grudge-holding, and sinfully flawed. Additionally, Reay portrayed them and their reactions to cancer/grief in a variety of ways. Some tried to put on a brave front, others reacted in anger, some became withdrawn, still other internalize their
This book is great for anyone who loves romances and mysteries. This book incites many different emotions from the reader like excitement, awe, sadness and yet this is an extremely relatable book to many teens because Pudge’s feelings are very real and common. Even though this book does contain death and many grave moments this book is really funny. My favorite part was the ending because I felt it the book meaning and purpose. Though this book is only 221 pages it has a lot of action, emotion, love, and suspense in it. Also, in just 221 pages John Green gets a great message across.It is perfect for a quick read. But this book does include some (not very much) explicit language. This book is also great for school readings since it has a deeper meaning and multiple motifs and themes that a student can learn from. For example, the themes in this book include love, death, religion, expectations versus reality, friendship, and
One day Rhyan and I had just gotten out of college. Rhyan went to his dad's house and told his dad that we were going to borrow his car and his dad said no. That night Rhyan said let's take the car anyway. I said, “ Is that a good idea?” Of course it wasn’t but I said ok anyway. The main reason why we wanted to go to Seattle, Washington was to get the Seattle Seahawks to sign a football for his Dad’s Christmas present. So, back to the story. Right before we left, his dad woke up and went into our room. He saw that we were still there playing games and as soon as he went back to bed we snuck outside to take the car. We were finally on our way to Seattle Washington. That morning
