I found this novel okay because it's not the type of book I like to read.
During the novel I had to complete a thinking map which shows that I can classify how the author has shown the theme of the book.
National Standard this covers
- Year 9/10 Standard
- I can locate, evaluate, analyse and summarize information and ideas within texts and across a range of texts.
- I have a large vocabulary that is connected to my own knowledge about the world and includes: - academic e.g observe vs watch - subject-specific (specific words about a subject (e.g feline) - technical terms (specialised vocabulary of a particular field.)
Overall I would give this novel a rating of 6/10 and I would / would not recommend it to others to read because some people like to read books about history and I think they would like it.
