The Dark Side of the City


On the wall was writing in large letters which read, `WE KNOE WHERE YOU LIVE.´ On the desk was blood and the body of a large dead snake - the Gray's Burmese python. (P.44 L.24)
 I read The Dark Side of the City, a level 2 book in the Cambridge English Readers. This is a mystery story. A man asks investigator, Nat Marley to help with a family problem. As he finds some true things, he knows the dark side of the city. This is a good mystery. I enjoyed reading this book. I want you to read it. By the way, do you think are there any dark sides of your city? And If there are dark sides of your city, do you want to know about it? I don't want to know about the dark side of the city because it may be dangerous and I may not be able to live in peace. I have to be worried about it. I don't know about the dark side of my hometown, but perhaps there is the dark side.... What do you think about it?

Different World

                         Sometimes you have to fight for what you want. (p.42 l.9)

 I read Different World, a level 2 book in the Cambridge English Readers. It is a love story. The main character is a woman, Sam. She is deaf, but she have a good time with her mother and friends. One day she met Jim. He was a good man. She enjoyed talking with him and gradually fell in love each other. At the party she found a woman, Lauren.  She is a former girlfriend of Jim. Lauren told her that Jim is a musician.  Sam didn' t know about it, so she was shocked. She wanted Jim to tell her about it. She was worried about him and her own deafness. They are in a different world. Can they meet and spend a good time together again? I think having physical disabilities is hard thing, but people can find any importance things by having it. If I find people who have physical disabilities, I want to find something what I can and support them. Although sometimes we face some difficulties, we can get over it by talking with family and friends. This book was very good, so I want you to read it.

Holly the Eco Warrior

 
 
 I read Holly the Eco Warrior, a level 2 book in the Helbling Readers. This book is about the environment and family. A girl think that protecting the environment is very important. Her father planed to cut down the tree and build an office, but she disagreed with the idea because she liked the tree. She was angry for father and didn't listen to what he says. She didn't spend time with her family and lived in the tree house. It was comfortable for her to live there, but her family was worried about her. Although her mother told her to go back to family house, she didn't listen to it. One day it was thundering. Is Holly and the tree house safe? What does her family think about her and the tree? This book is good for us to think about the environment. What do you think about the environment? Is it important?  Also I think this book tells us the importance of having our own idea. We can affect people by having it and telling it. If we have any important ideas about something, it is good to tell other people. Please check this book!
