Bridge to Terabithia

Bridge to Terabithia
Katherine Paterson

Newberry Award Winner

Jess wants to be the fastest runner. Not next to fastest, not almost fastest, the fastest. When he is running in the summer, he meets a new girl named Leslie. The next day at school, Leslie races with the boys and wins. Jess and Leslie become friends and create their own secret country, Terabithia, across the stream. Lately, the stream bordering Terabithia has been getting higher and higher, faster and faster, so much that Jess doesn't like to cross it. When he goes away for the day, Leslie crosses the stream by herself...

This is the BEST book I have ever read, and I have read hundreds of books in eleven years. When I saw it, I thought it would be really bad, but it was AWESOME!!!!! It was also the saddest book I have ever read. It is the only book that had ever made me cry. My sumerization is no where near the book, and I would reccomend it to anyone.

If there was a girl racing where the boys were, how would you act? What would you do if she beat you?

What would you get someone for Christmas if you had no money?

If your only friend died, how would you react?

Urchin of the Riding Stars

The Mistmantle Chronicles
Urchin of the Riding Stars
M. I. McAllister

A young squirrel falls out of the sky on a nightt of riding stars. The next night of riding stars, Prince Tunble is murdered. Urchin is now the page of Captain Crispen. Crispen is banished from the island because the King thinks it was him. Urchin, now Captain Prada's page, works hard to find evidense against the evil Captain Husk and Lady Aspen. Will he succede?

I actually read this book because it looked a lot like a Redwall book. It turned out to be AWESOME! The review isn't great, but it is hard to get anything near the book. This book was awesome.

If you were Crispen's page, would you try to convince everyone that it wasn't him, believe in the Lots, or not know what to think?

Would you turn Prada in for rescuing the babes to be culled?

If you thougt you would be murdered like Urchin, would you leave, maybe never to return?

Book vs. Movie


The first thing I want to say is I have wanted to do this for a month. The second thing, I am one person who has his own opinion and does not speak for the world. If you disagree with me, I don't care. My best friend disagrees with me. I am sorry if this hurts some feelings.

THE MOVIE WAS HORRIBLE!!!!! This will take a while.

1. Sloan seemed nice to Eragon in the movie and he didn't in the book.
2. Eragon is wearing a modern leather vest on a modern white shirt! He wears a tunic!
3. Garrow and the farm were supposed to be burned down, but everything was just broken. Brom burned it!
4.Soldiers never came to the village in the book but were there in te movie.
5. The Ra'zac looked like mummies that were alive and had maggots crawling on them. They are supposed to be disformed creatures with black robes with a hood so you can't see their faces except for a black beak.
6. Arya didn't come to the part of the wood where Eragon was and tell him where she was. He saw her in her cell.
7. Angela was stupid and was rich and in the wrong town. Where was Solembum?
8. Teirm, Yauzak (or Daret, I can't remember), Dras Leona, and Theriensford were forgotten in the movie.
9. The Ra'zac killed Brom long before Gil'ead.
10. Murtagh joined Eragon long before Gil'ead.
11. Gil'ead isn't a fortress, it is a settlement.
12. The dwarves aren't mentioned in the movie.
13. Arya had black hair in the book.
14. The Twins are not in the movie.
15. Saphira couldn't breathe fire until the end of the book.
16. The urgals had horns in the book.
17 Arya didn't leave at the end of Eragon.
18. No offence to the actors, it isn't their fault, the casting was bad and the script was bad.
19. Galbatorix isn't in the book.
20. Saphira's voice was wimpy.
21. Durza didn't ride anything.

I think that is it.

Please tell me what you think of the movie.

Eragon Book Three Predictions is another post by me.

The Legend of Luke

The Legend of Luke
Brian Jaques

Part One and Three - When a young hedgehog maid comes to Redwall and sings a song about Luke, the father of Martin the Warrior, Martin becomes troubled by his past. Soon, he and his adventuresome friends are off to learn what happened to Luke.

Part Two - Luke's wife, Sanya, was murdered by Vilu Daskar, a tretcherour villian who takes slaves. After conquering a ship, Luke and his tribe hunts down Vilu to kill him. Will he make it?

This book, though it took a long time to read, was awesome! I liked that the middle section was about Luke, not just Vurg telling a story. My favorite character is Chugger, the way he talks and behaves is hallarious! This was one of my Favorite of the twelve Redwall books I have read! Great Book!

If you forgot what your father was like, and would have to travel far to know about him, would you go through the same journey as Martin?

If you could be any of the animals in the book, what would you be?

If you were Luke, would you hold Vilu down if it meant you would die, just to make sure he did?
