Newbery için mükemmel seçim - biraz farklı bir şey seçtikleri zamanı geldi. Yürümeye başlayan bir çocukken ailesi öldürülen bir çocuk bir mezarlıkta hayaletler tarafından yetiştirilir. Onu da öldürmesi gereken katil hala tehlikede. Bu kitapla ilgili en sevdiğim şey, yazarın ölümden sonra hayatın esrarengiz versiyonunu yarattığı ince yol. Çok şey açıklanmıyor ve bir araya gelmek için okuyucuya bırakıldı, ancak hepsi tatmin edici. Bunu öneririm.
Lots of detail. Enjoyed the movie better
I just finished reading this and have that warm-fuzzy feeling I get when I read something that was just perfect. I'm not desperate for more, not overwhelmed, not too sad or too happy - just content. This is my second favorite way to feel when I finish a book. Boy Meets Boy is a charming story about friendship, love, and bravery. It takes place in a world I want to believe in, and even though I don't quite, I have hope that some days there are places in real life that are close. The voice is one of the most pleasant and consistent that I've read in a while, and I was not only entertained by Paul, but genuinely liked him and was rooting for him. The secondary characters were delightful and fun, too, as well as occasionally painfully accurate. Like Marchetta's SAVING FRANCESCA, this reminded me about what I loved in high school, about the friendships I made there and the ways my heart was broken and reforged (and other dramatic teenage things). If the second chapter were lifted out in its entirety, I would have nothing to complain about. But as it is, there's nothing *wrong* with the second chapter - it just doesn't really fit with the rest of the narrative and forced me to consciously turn on my suspension of disbelief. Push through it! Because the rest is totally worth it.
