The Catcher in the Rye is a terrible book. I would only recommend it to the people that I hate. It's disappointing, the main character is too arrogant, and overall the plot is just annoying,
The book is disappointing, and not just because it is a remodel of a theme that one begins to suspect must master the author. Holden Caulfield, the main character who tells his own story, is a right person, but there is too much of him. ...
Holden is too arrogant of himself. The reader worries about his obviousness and repetition. Holden is also isn't as creative as everyone thought he was. In any case, he is so selfish that the other characters who go through the book— except his sister, have practically nothing to do with the book.
The plot is boring. Occasionally, Holden shows up at a hotel and asks for a prostitute, but at the climax of the story, all you get is him seeing his sister riding a rollercoaster. You don't even get to see the end of it.
All in all, The Catcher in the Rye is disappointing, the main character is arrogant, and the plot is boring.
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card is an excellent read because of the suspense, interesting characters, and a plot that always pulls you into the story.
First, the author filled this book with suspense and mystery. It has the most exciting ways to drag you into reading on. Once the book has you in that place, it surprises you some time with instant action and sometimes with a more slow and suspenseful action (Mysterious Teacher).
Second, this book incorporates lots of interesting characters that were real people. Take Peter for instance. He is a character that seems right to everyone in the story, but you're the only one that knows who he is. Also, there are numerous other interesting figures in the book. These characters are always interconnected in a way to the main characters.
Third, the story drags you to read more. It is long enough to keep you reading so that it can bring up some more actions to keep you reading again. It's like a never-ending cycle to gain your interests. It always brings something up that gets your attention. In my case, just when you think the fighting is over, a surprise attack comes.
In conclusion, Ender's Game is a must read when you have the time.
Markus Zusak wrote The Book Thief in 2004. It has been a best seller everywhere and has a movie made about it! It has won the Kathleen Mitchel Award, Book Sense Book of the Year Award for Children's Literature, etc.
This book is large and thick. Totalling 552 pages, this is defiantly not a book you can tear through in a week. The Book Thief is about a little girl named Liesel Memminger. She travels to her foster's parent's house and lives there for many years. She goes on all these different and exciting adventures about stealing books (hence the name). This gigantic book is narrated by death which gives this an interesting point of view. She meets this lemon-colored hair boy named Rudy, a Hitler spastic shop owner, and even the mayor's wife!!!
The author used new word choices for death and little notes that just add so much to the overall theme of the book.
Niccolo’ Machiavelli wrote The Prince in the 1500s. It is a best seller in many different languages all around the world.
This little book is 124 pages, so it is concise. The Prince is the must read if you just have a short time to spare. The Prince is a classic that explains the fundamental rules of being a good leader, not a good Christian. This book profoundly focuses on political power in the western world. He wrote this to give advice to how “a prince” should present his power (many ways) and keep his political power.
He noted that it is safer to be feared than to be a right person. The Prince is still relevant to the world that we are living in right now.
To kill a Mockingbird is an Academy Award-Winning film, and book. To kill a Mockingbird, it was first published in 1960 and won an award in just one year!
This novel will never be forgotten in my head. It is a passive Southern Town where an issue happened. The accusation of a black man raping a white girl. This time-traveling book twists and turns through interesting decisions and weird yet funny actions of a character.
This book is compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving. This book goes into the foundation of human behavior - from innocence to hatred to love, this is a definite must-read. This intriguing book title means to destroy innocence and that is what it's all about.
