The book was enjoyable to read. I could relate to each character in a different way. My favorite part of the book was when each character was introduced in their chapters. The characters are all so different but all have one thing in common which is being on the list. I would highly recommend this book to classmates.
The book grasps all parts of growing up in a unstable environment, with the parents getting divorces, moving away from friends to go to a new school, the meeting of new friends the getting falsely accused of things you say you did not do but still get in trouble for, feeling like nobody likes you, feeling like running away and the lazy never wanting to get up out of bed mornings. The author, Bridget Lowry, Is trying to portray the problems of growing up and I think she succeeds in this novel. This novel is very exciting and adventurous I do recommend other students read this book
7) I can imagine myself re-reading this book again in 10 years because this book is amazing and it is perfect for teenagers and young adult readers. This book is griping and beautifully written. When reading this book you get thrown into the apocalyptic setting. I would recommend this book to my friends because I loved it and all the other books in the series. It’s just great.
The cover of this book caught my eye and I wondered what it was. When I saw it I thought to myself and I said I would give this book a chance. I flipped the book over and I started reading a paragraph about the book. It had a lot of details and it was describing the characters very well. A good book for me is one with a
In the end I was very happy that the author wrote this book close to real life like he did. I feel that it really brought the book together in the end and made it more relatable. Like I said before I feel that everyone could find a way to relate back to this book. Wether it was playing soccer, getting in trouble, or taking care of the ones you love you can always find something to relate to in this great book.
To start off, a part I did not like about the book was the part about Ove’s dad. I felt as though this complicated the plot a lot and was not necessary to the base of the book. It did not need to be added into the book because it had no effect to my understanding of what was happening in the book. If anything it made me more confused because it went back in time, then it came back to the present and it was confusing what time period we were in at the moment. A good part of the book was when Parvaneh was becoming friends with Ove because he needed to get out of his daily routine. Ove needed someone to shake up the life he had been living for many years. I would not recommend this book to adolescents because the book was confusing at some points and the humor was guided towards the adults. Personally, I would read another book by Fredrik Backman because the book was still very well written. I also could understand the book, for the most part. To continue, this book would be better read by adults because the humor was more guided to that age group. Also, this book is still relevant today because people do not live forever. We have to learn to move on from the bad times just like Ove did. When a loved one dies we feel grief, but like Ove we use the people around us to begin to feel better about what happened to us. In conclusion, this was a good book and I would rate it three out of five
I would recommend this book to people that are into a little bit of comedy, drama, a little bit of romance and some mystery because even though this book has a serious topic it has a lot of humorous jokes that some people can relate to.
Personally, I relate to the main character, Stargirl, the most. I learned about her character throughout the book and sympathize with her individuality. As a teenager myself, it is tough to be original and learn how to develop personal independence. Stargirl is not bothered by her peer’s negative comments and I can relate. Furthermore, Stargirl likes to satisfy others and keep them happy. I have four sisters and I also can understand how she feels. I also relate to Stargirl because I tend to help others out. I do not like seeing people alone or sad. For example, I transferred to Saint Margaret Mary from Susquehanna Township. The first week was difficult socially. It is not a great situation to be in, and like Stargirl, I try to help individuals out like Dori Dilson. To conclude, Stargirl and I are similar because we both enjoy life and rather give than
I thought that the characters were very involved and interesting, they made me want to keep reading for example in the text when Earl and Greg talk on the phone it’s funny. The plot wasn’t as interesting and it was pretty confusing, like the text kept changing. There were many themes in this book and they all stood out. The story through Greg’s point of view was fine until he was explaining stuff, I got confused when
I also enjoyed how although discussing touchy subjects and sad topics, the book was still funny as well as sad. I could feel what the characters were feeling such as I felt for Pudge when Alaska passed away but I also felt the highs, for example during the pre-prank I was smiling and laughing with them. On a scale of enjoyment from one to ten this book was a ten out of
One of the reasons that I like this book is that most all of the characters are near my age and could certainly relate.
Schneider gives these diverse outlooks of life through the eyes of her characters. One of the most interesting characters happens to be the main character, Ezra. Ezra is an intelligent boy who thought he had his whole life together, unfortunately that all changed one night. It changed when “his girlfriend cheated on him, he got into a car accident, and before he fell in love with the new girl Cassidy Thorpe.” After all these depressing encounters, Ezra was done with life and described this as his “personal tragedy.”
I chose the book, The Season, because I saw it on the shelve on the library and it said it was a new book so I decided to check it out. When I went to go check it out, I read the flap of the book, and it definitely caught my attention. So, I checked it out for 3 weeks. My first impression was the cover; it had a girl on it in a stained pink dress while the rest of the girls were wearing white, that caught my attention because the girl stood out from the crowd, and was different. Also on the cover it said that the book had something to do with debutantes and disasters. I didn't think those two mixed, so I was even more eager to check it out.
