Matilda. Roald Dahl

Luis Solance:
Under the appearance of a simple tale, Matilda is an imaginative and surprising story that transports you to a world where fantasy walks along with people to colour their grey lives. Dahl demonstrates how talent and hard work can lead you to reach your target and, in case of our little heroine, to beat the dark side of authority.
It really amused me from the beginning to the end and, It was moving to share with Matilda the pleasure of being able to read the first english books.

Luke and Jon. Robert Williams

Daniel Cantera.
"This book tells us how people can improve despite the events. Robert Williams tries to explain to the readers how friendship is the best way to fight against a dreadful situation.
I recommend reading it because it shows the importance of friendship and it is not hard reading.
The characters try to do their best to help their relatives and friends to overcome tough times so it is a positive message for the reader.

Matilda. Roald Dahl

Oscar Casado. NI2 Group A
I think that this is the kind of stories everybody likes. It is a good story, not only for children but also for parents bacause it has a nice message and it can help us understand children's world.
I recommend reading this book because it is easy and funny and especially because it brings back Cinderella in the character of Matilda. There is also a witch, Miss Trunchlook and the fairy godmother, Miss Honey. It is, therefore, a narrative with all the ingredients of a classic story. Summing up, interesting and recommended.

Desert Flower. Waris Dirie

Eva Jiménez, NI2 Group D.
Waris's determination, courage and strenth made her change her destiny. They are the main ingredients in this amazing story. I highly recommend reading it.

Twilight. Stephanie Meyer

Minka Paris (NI2 Group B)
Twilight is a very beautiful and interesting book because, from the first page, the story is interesting and easy to follow in English. It mixes fantasy and reality. Bella, the main character, is an ordinary girl, like me or like anyone I know and Edward is a misterious and dangerous vampire. Despite being different, he introduces her to the vampire's world and they fall in love.
The plot is good and gripping and the characters are very interesting, so I highly recommend teenagers read it.

The Curious Incedent of the Dog in the Night-Time. Mark Haddon

Eduardo Pérez . (NI2-Group D)
I have enjoyed a lot reading this book. First of all, it is easy to read because the narrator is a teenager. It is worth reading in English as the vocabulary is not hard and the plot can be followed easily.
I have especially liked the way the writer explains Asperger's Syndrome. It made me understand people with this symdrome and see the way their mind work. I have also enjoyed Christopher's drawings and dyagrams which reflect his own thoughts and the author has wisely used them as a resort.
Summarizing, it sometimes is funny and sometimes sad but always a good option.
