The Fault in our Stars Review
I read The Fault in our Stars after hearing all of my friends talk about it and say how amazing and emotional it was. They were right. The Fault in our Stars is a mixture of upbeat, happy feelings that make you smile as you’re reading and sad moments that make you cry, but keep turning the pages. Every time something happened, I had to make myself stop and I texted my cousin and we would have long discussions about what was happening.
The Fault in our Stars is about a teen named Hazel who has a terminal tumor. The tumor shrunk a little and bought her a few years, but Hazel knows that she will die soon. She goes to a therapy session every week just to get out of the house. This particular time that she goes there is someone new. His name is Augustus Waters. They start talking and she discovers that he also has a form of cancer that affects his bones. They become good friends and overcome fears and battles together. This book is full of unexpected twists and turns that catch you completely off guard. I think many people can relate to this book, or at least learn an important lesson from it. The Fault in our Stars shows insight on how the characters change and feel throughout the whole book.
My cousin gave me the copy after she had finished it. She warned me that I would end up crying, but I didn't think much of that because almost every book that she gives me was like that. I should have taken her warning seriously. This book is an emotional rollercoaster. As soon as I opened it, it sucked me in and I could not stop reading it. I read in class, at home after school, and in bed until I was too tired and could barely open my eyes. I just wanted to know what was going to happen next.
I would recommend this book to ANYBODY. This book would be a life changing book for kids, teens, and adults. For people who read a lot, they could probably finish it in less than a week. I read it in 3 days! So go find a copy and read this inspirational book. You’ll never forget it.
CHOMP BOOK REVIEW
I like books that have adventure, are interesting and exciting. Chomp is a book that has all that. It is about Mickey and his son, Wahoo, getting a job in a reality TV show, which turn out not to be so real. Wahoo is named after a wrestler, not the fish. That is something he keeps mentioning in the book.The reality TV show is starring Derek Badger, who you can describe as a coward. In the show, he “wrestles” animals for people’s entertainment, which becomes a problem. The book conveys many themes, like you have to rely in yourself, but teamwork is still important. Teamwork is shown in many ways, especially in the everglades.
As I stated before Chomp has all the elements I like about books. It's full of excitement and adventure, and it keeps you interested while reading. There are many adventurous parts, like the scene with Alice the alligator, Tuna's dad (Tuna is another main character), and how Derek Badger reacts in the Everglades to a bat attack. It makes you not want to stop, I, sometimes read 60 pages in a day of it.
I liked the book more than any book I have read this school year. I kept interested from the beginning to the end of the book. Chomp was a book I heard about and decided to read. I decided to read this book, because I heard that it was a good book, and I also liked the unique book cover that it has. The book cover is a cartoonish alligator with his jaws opened. That's really significant, because the book doesn't have anything similar with the cover; except that the cover is an alligator, and an alligator plays a part in the book.That made me curious to know what it is about.
One character I liked reading about was Mickey. He had a concussion in the past, and ever since he had double vision and constant headaches. He gets grumpy a lot, since that incident. I like reading about him because he's grumpy, but still knows how to be smart. When he doesn't like someone, he really doesn't like that someone, just like how he felt about Derek Badger in the begging.Since I liked the book, I am planning to read the other books written by the same author. The books include Hoot and Flush.
