Book Reviews from Year 7 Book Group

We all chose a book which we felt passionately about and gave three reasons why it meant so much to us.

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

Tolkien includes vivid descriptions of places and things that are important and invokes certain feelings in the reader.

I enjoy the fantasy genre of this book and think that it is a beautiful, imaginative and clever setting.

The characters are very real and have strong personalities. They are all very important to the book and there are none that you just think:”What are these people’s place in the story?”

The Spook’s Apprentice by Joseph Delaney

The first reason I liked this book is because the apprentice is a bit more modern and ncer whereas the spook is a lot more in the time of the book, and they have to work together.

The second reason I liked this book is because you are hooked on by everything the author is writing.

The third reason I liked this book is because the creatures are made up but the way the author describes it, they sound real.

Ethan 7Ru

Divergent by Veronica Roth

You really feel for the characters as though they are your friend.

The way she writes makes the setting so easy to imagine and you can get into the book easily.

It’s slightly real because of how much people will do for something he or she wants.

Charlie 7Ex

The Recruit by Robert Muchamore (CHERUB Series)

It is the best child spy book I have read because none of the chapters are boring and every word gets you hooked and excited.

The characters are very well described and the author makes you love the good characters and makes you detest the bad guys.

The author also gave the book some humour to it and that’s great because you aren’t weeping when you close the book.

Ben 7Ru

Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger

I love the language, the old vocabulary and the etiquette of speaking.

The characters are all very different but very strong as well as brilliant.

It’s not all history. It has modern twists as well as plots, adventures and mysteries which grip you and once you start on a mystery you can’t stop.

Isabella 7Mc

Wild Rescue by J Burchett and S Volger (Earthquake Escape)

I like this book because:
The author goes into lots of detail and describes everything to a high extent.

The genre is action but it isn’t too over the top. There aren’t any battles but they still need to do different tasks to rescue the animals.

I like the characters because they are relatable, well described and quite funny. ~They are brother and sister so they are often winding each other up.

Sarah 7Ex

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling

I love how this book brings the whole franchise toghether.

J.K. Rowling really describes in such specific detail it’s incredible. She describes what patterns on somebody’s clothes to the exact colour but not like “dark blue” more like “midnight purple”.

I love the fantasy genre altogether so this, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and all books like that, I will enjoy a lot.
