Things Not Seen by Andrew Clements
Things Not Seen

jordan.linn97, June 10, 2010

Really fun but easy read, really well written as well. This book is set in modern times, it is about a boy about 13 years old. He has woken up one morning ad found himself invisible. He goes on an investigation to try and figure out what was going on to his body. He meet a blind girl named Alicia, they both try and figure out what has happened to his body. The thing that I liked about this book is that the author wrote it like bobby was telling the story instead of being a narrator to the story, which I find kind of boring. When I read this book I could not stop because the author ended the chapters with the most amazing cliffhangers that you could read.
Also this author does a great job because he uses great literary terms. Great book to read for all ages.

Ender's Game (Ender Wiggins Saga) by Orson Scott Card
Ender's Game (Ender Wiggins Saga)

I Could not put Ender's game down it was so good. This story is set in the future when people are able to live on other planets and the human race is have a war with aliens called buggers. This book has action, suspense, and a little bit of adventure which is what makes it a great read. At every chapter it ends with a cliffhanger and that really pulls you in to reading more and more. The story is about a little kid named Ender that is drafted to go to war school. When he is there he excelled so much that he moves up through "grades" easily. He meets a lot of new people on his way to the top. One of the themes in this story is to never give up no matter what happens. The reason I like this book is because the author lets Ender tell the story instead of being a narrator, which I find boring. I love this book and I reccomend it for people of all ages.

The Book of Three (Chronicles of Prydain #1) by Lloyd Alexander
The Book of Three (Chronicles of Prydain #1)

The book of Three, is a well written book. The Book of Three has action, suspense, and a lot of adventure.It is set in the middle ages and when you read it,it feels like you are here because the author is so vivid with his descriptions. There are many themes in this book but the main one that sticks out to me is "every living thing deserves our it humble or proud, ugly or beautiful". This theme says that you should respect living things no matter how they act or what the look like. The story is about a young teenager named Taran that has just been promoted to Assistant Pig-keeper, who goes on a journey to find his lost oracular pig. He meets a lot of new intresting people like Elionwy, Fflewdur Flew, and Gurgi. This book is a well written, however the thing that I do not like about it is the way it is told by the author instead of the Taran. If you read this book you will get a good book and that it brings action, suspense an adventure. I highly recommend this book to all ages because it a good and fun read.
