The Devil and His Boy

The devil and his boy is a book written by Anthony Horowitz. It is sort of non-fiction. It is a book set around 1593. This is Shakespeare’s time. This is what I call the revolution of plays. This is what the book is about. It is about a boy that wants to get into a [...]

Steve Jobs’ Biography

I have completed steve Jobs’ biography after a roughy 3 weeks of reading. The book was written by Walter Isaacson. Obviously the book talks about Steve Jobs’ life and trust me, it was fascinating. This book was full of different stories which kept you concentrated the whole way through. Almost every single page tells a [...]

Steve Jobs’ Biography

I have started reading the biography of Steve Jobs written by Walter Isaacson. Walter Isaacson has also written biographies on Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin. Even though this book is unique, interesting and relaxing, it does not seem to end. I’ve been reading this book for the past 2 weeks and I’m on page 350. [...]

Up-hill

I decided to write about the poem ‘up-hill’ by Christina Rossetti. The poem is about someone going all the way up the hill and it is exhausting. At the very top there is located an inn. And the point is that he will find comfort after the tiring journey. Metaphorically, this poem is about the [...]

Sea Fever

I am writing about the poem ‘sea fever’ by John Masefield. I found this the most interesting poem of the past 3 we read. I like the repetitive patterns in the poem such as “I must down to the sea again” and ” flung spray and the blown spume”. It gives this sort of rhythm [...]

The heart of a samurai

‘The heart of a samurai’ is a book written by Margi Preus. The book is based on a true story. The story is se in the mid-1800′s. I love reading books based on a true story. I am stunned every time I read one of those books how people made decisions, how they lived, how [...]

The knife of never letting go

I have just finished reading “The knife of never letting go” by Patrick Ness. This is the first book of the series. I do not know what the series is called. It was the winner of the ‘Guardian children’s fiction prize’. This was one of the most interesting books I ever read. The Language they [...]

‘Romeo and Juliet’ – Thesis statement

We are not certain if the lovers are killed by either fate, will or chance. It is difficult to conclude without having enough evidence.

People’s republic

I have started reading ‘People’s republic’ by Robert Muchamore. I chose the book by judging its cover. There is a boy on a skateboard, jumping in the air. The book is about secret agents and I quite like it. It would have been even better if the main characters were adults instead of children.

“Ryan [...]

Zhang Lijia

My first impression towards Zhang Lijia was that she looked very traditional. The clothes were really like the traditional clothes. The presentation was very clear and I was really astonished about her life. As mr. Macknight told us she was very brave. To start with, she had lots of courage to try and make it [...]

Westside Story

Watching the movie ‘westside story’ made ‘Romeo and Juliet’ a bit funny. From all the versions of ‘Romeo and juliet’, I think this is one of the funniest. There have not been any funny songs or phrases in ‘Romeo and Juliet’. The storyline was more or less the same as in the original play. However [...]

Could it be ‘will’?

There has been tons of evidence that Romeo and juliet are murdered my will. Will is when people choose to do something by their self that leads to something bad. They cannot it are the gods who made this happen or it was just dumb luck. It is their own fault. Act 2 is full [...]

Boy soldier

‘Boy soldier’ is a book written by Andy Mcnab and Robert Rigby. It is more like a mystery book. I have not read many pages yet but I like it. Most books I read have a weak beginning but this surprisingly does not. I was not sure if I should read this book, judging by [...]

Fate caused in ‘Romeo and Juliet’

On the other hand, perhaps fate causes Romeo and Juliet’s death. ‘Romeo and Juliet’ were a pair of star-crossed lovers according to Shakespeare. I am telling you this because he says this in the prologue of ‘Romeo and Juliet’: “A pair of star-crossed lovers” (Prologue, line 6). The ancients believed that ‘fate’ was written in [...]

Chance in ‘Romeo and Juliet’

Romeo and Juliet were possibly killed by chance. The prologue starts of by saying, “Whose misadventured piteous overthrows” .The word ‘misadventured’ means it was an unlucky tragic accident. Chance was what caused their death. Another example is when the servant who is supposed to invite the guests cannot read. He then meets Romeo and Mercutio [...]

The faceless ones (skulduggery pleasant 3)

I have completed reading ‘the faceless ones’. This is the third in the series of ‘skulduggery pleasant’. I know this is not the last even though the main character dies. I am looking forward to reading the books continuing the series. The book seemed very similar to the first 2 but ended surprisingly different. It [...]

Playing with fire (skulduggery Pleasant)

I have finished reading the second in the series of ‘skulduggery Pleasant’. as I told you in one of my previous posts, I enjoyed reading the first of the series. However, the series is quite popular and therefore not available in the library all the time. I can tell you that this book is very [...]

The ugly truth

I have finished reading ‘The ugly truth’ by Jeff Kinney. ‘The ugly truth’ is the fifth in the series of ‘Diary of a wimpy kid’. It is comedy but it might seem ridiculous for a 13-year-old to still read these books. I find them quite amusing but most of all fabulous for daily vocabulary. Thanks [...]

The hobbit

I have finished reading ‘the hobbit’ (which I already made a post of). It seemed to be quite a boring book in the beginning. This might have been because I have already seen ‘lord of the rings’ which is similar to the beginning. For those of you who are planning to read this book and [...]

The hobbit

I have started reading the hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. He is a very famous from writing the trilogy of lord of the rings. I have enjoyed watching the movies and that is one reason why I chose this book. Another reason was because it was recommend by Mr. Macdonald. I have also started reading this [...]
