Book Review 2

What I read: Percy Jackson and the Lightning theif, By Rick Riordian, It is a fantasy book, it is 347 page long, I rate this book a nine out of ten.

How it starts: It starts with percy jackson the main character in school, he just wants to be accepted.

How it gets complicated: It gets complicated when percy goes on a feild trip to a museum and a monster is seen, him and his friend grover fight it off. Then percy is in danger because he figures out he is a demigod and the monsters figure that out too, so he gets taken to a demigod camp and he figures out he is the son of his mom and of posiden, he is the only so of posiden there.

What I liked: What I liked most about this book was that there was always some action going on whether it was a fight or just training in camp. That is my favorite part of this book, all of the action.

What I disliked: What I disliked was nothing, the only thing I disliked was when the movie came out I watched that and it was nothing like the book.

Recommendation: I would reccomend this book to most boys because boys love action.

Book Review #1

What I read: I read the book Among the hidden, by Margaret Peterson Haddix, the genre is realistic fiction, it is 186 pages. I rate this book a four out of five.

How it starts: The main chracter is Luke a twelve year old third child, and third children are illegal in this world. He just wants to be able to go outside and play and do things that the two oldest in his family can do, he wants to go into the city for the first time like his older brothers. The setting for most of the beggining of the book is in his house because he is not allowed to leave.

How it gets complicated: It gets complicated because as he is sitting in his room looking out a vent he sees another third child in a house next to him. This makes it complicated because he has to meet her, so he sneeks out and meets her.

What I liked: There are may things that I liked about the story I liked it mostly because the author describes so well and makes it feel a lot better. As the book continues you feel closer to the character.

What I disliked: I didn’t dislike too much, the only thing I didn’t like was it was too short.

Quote: “Best hiding place in the world. The maids to lazy to clean under there.”

Context: At this point in the story they are planning a revolt against the government. Luke is over at jens house and they are talking about the population police, the people that make sure there are no third children in the world. They are not doing a very good job because all these third children are planning to revolt against them and the government that they work for. I think that this is them just having fun because they are third children that don’t really get to do much. It is nice to see that they are actually having or trying to have a lot of fun instead of sitting around and doing nothing.

This Makes me think: This makes me think because it doesn’t really make a lot of sense because it never mentions them ever doing anything fun.

Quote: “Jen nodded, a wicked gleam in her eye.”

Context: At this point in the story they are planning a revolt against the government. Luke is over at jens house and they are talking about the population police, the people that make sure there are no third children in the world. They are not doing a very good job because all these third children are planning to revolt against them and the government that they work for. In this sentence it is Jen thinking about what her and luke wanted to do to them.

This make me think: This makes me think because why would she be wicked. She has to be mad at someone or something, because why else would she have a wicked gleam in her eye. This is good because as the author describes very well and it makes you think.

Are Books Dangerous

Many things can have a lot of power, such as for example books. Books can be powerful in a good way and a bad way. Books can be really dangerous to some people and can be really helpful to others. Some of the dangers of books are, that when you are trying to prove a point, a book can give evidence to contradict what you are saying. If you are at court and a lawyer going against pulls out a book and reads like a law or something it can be dangerous. You can be sent to jail, because when you make a claim and someone proves it wrong it can be very dangerous.

Quote: ” Luke could barely speak for the panic welling inside him.”

Context: At this point in the story they are planning a revolt against the government.

This makes me think: This makes me think because he uses a lot of describing words.

The Book Thief So Far

Right as I began to read this I started thinking about it which isn’t the easiest thing to do with this book. This book has such good firgurative language and as my english teacher calls them writing tools. There is a lot to like about this book like, all of the great writing and the great plot line that it follows. There is not much to dislike, but I do not like that some parts of the are hard to understand. I also don’t like that it is a really big book because it is very intimidating. I have never read this book and I am really enjoying it so far.

Quote: ” Heck, I may call the population police myself.”

Context: At this point in the story they are planning a revolt against the government. Luke is over at jens house and they are talking about the population police, the people that make sure there are no third children in the world. They are not doing a very good job because all these third children are planning to revolt against them and the government that they work for.

This makes me think: This quote makes me think for many reasons like it makes me think because she is a third child and she is saying that she will call the population police on her self. It makes me think because she has to be joking, so you have to think about it. It makes for good writing because it actually has meaning to it, it is not just words.
