Les Petits Bookineurs exposent leurs coups de cœur au CDI


Author: J.R.R. Tolkien

Summary: This book is about Bilbo Bagins, a Hobbit. Hobbits are a race which looks like small humans with hairy feet. They love to live calmly in very cosy little hobbit holes under a grassy hill and have many meals per day (up to six!!). Bilbo was peacefully making smoke-rings with his pipe in his garden when a wizard, Gandalf, came to ask him to join him for an adventure. But Hobbits prefer not to have any adventures and live peacefully so Bilbo refuses but invites Gandalf  for tea the next day. At tea time, somebody knocks at Bilbo’s door: it’s Gandalf and thirteen dwarves who persuade Bilbo to set out on the adventure. The dwarves are about to embark on a great quest to reclaim their treasure from the fearsome dragon Smaug, and Bilbo is to act as their “burglar”. The dwarves are very sceptical about Gandalf’s choice, and Bilbo is terrified to leave his comfortable life to seek adventure. But Gandalf assures both Bilbo and the dwarves that the hobbit has hidden abilities which would be useful to the company. Will they succeed in their task or will they die killed by the dragon himself or by other dreadful creatures which infest the region crossing their path?

Personal Opinion: Even if this book is a bit long (364 p.) I think it is very easy to read and not boring. This book is a masterpiece of the well-known J.R.R. Tolkien. Compared to the Lord of The Rings, this book is much easier to read and much more exciting. The book is also a bit different from the film. What I think is amazing in this book is that everything is invented and still full of details. In conclusion, I recommend this book to every reader even for English beginners! 

¨LIFE OF PI¨ written by Yann Martel

 It´s a strong-emotion book, it´s very interesting and it was hard to stop reading.

The main character is Piscine Molitor Patel (Piscine Molitor was a swimming pool in France that his uncle Mamaji loved because the water of the pool was crystalline and warm) who used to live in India but when he tells his story he is living in Canada. When he was a child he lived in a zoo with his brother, mother and father . He practiced three religions, he was a Muslim, a Christian and a Hindu. He moved to Canada because his father wanted to escape from India. They left on a Japanese ship which sank in the Pacific Ocean and only Pi, a 16 year-old Indian, a zebra , a hyena, an orang-utan and a 450-pound Royal Bengal  tiger ended up on a life boat . Will they survive?

GONE by Michael Grant

Alexian, 3°

Sam Temple lives in California with his mother, but one day, during their history class the teacher disappears. The children realise that a kind of sphere is around the town and that they can’t go out of it, and the adults and the children over fifteen have disappeared. They have gone. The “freaks”, children who have power, cause some trouble and two gangs have formed and fight to know who is going to lead. Food is beginning to run out and time is pressing because on the day of their fifteenth birthday, they know they will disappear and Sam is nearly fifteen.

I really enjoyed this book because there are adventures, actions and suspense. I think that the story is interesting and original and, that Michael Grant is a very good writer who knows how the make his book captivating and exciting.

By Josephine Angelini

When Helen looked in a mirror all she saw were the basics – two eyes, a nose, and a mouth – but strangers from off island tended to stare, which was really annoying.”

Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is—no easy task when living on an island, especially, when nightmares of a desperate desert journey have Helen waking, parched, only to find her sheets damaged by dirt and dust…At school she's haunted by hallucinations of three women weeping tears of blood . . . and when Helen first crosses paths with Lucas Delos, she has no way of knowing they're destined to play the leading roles in a tragedy the Fates insist on repeating throughout history.

As Helen unlocks the secrets of her ancestry, she realises that some myths are more than mere legends. But even demigod powers might not be enough to defy the forces that are both drawing her and Lucas together—and trying to tear them apart…

Starcrossed is completely addicting.... I read these 400 some pages in one afternoon, because I simply couldn’t stop.

I don't know it if was because I found the story so addictive or if it was because I was enchanted by the cast of characters. Either way, Starcrossed was an unforgettable read. Helen is a normal teenager, well as normal as a teenage demigod can be. I liked that Helen knew she was different, but didn't exactly know what that meant. This wasn't a story where the characters are completely surprised that they are a little different, yet at the same time Helen still discovers what she is and what it means to be her. I loved solving that mystery with her.

In 1943, Lily Tregenza lives on a farm in the seaside village of Slaton with her cat Tips, her mother, her grandfather and Barry. When the population has to leave the village Lily and her family settle at uncle George’s house.
Soon the village is surrounded by barbed wire. It serves the Allied forces to prepare the invasion in France. But Tips returns to the forbidden area.
Two soldiers, Harry and Adolphus, help her to find Tips.
At the end of the war, Lily finds her house and Tips. But Harry dies and Adolphus never comes back.
Many years later, while she was walking on the beach, she saw Adie. They got married a few months later.

I like this book because it’s easy to read and I like this author. The suspense remains until the end. The end is very surprising. The only thing I dislike is that some passages are a bit boring.

Around the World in 80 days

Author : This book was written by Jules Vernes. And it was published by the Penguin Readers collection. The book contains 114 pages and it is easy to read because it is written in big print.

Summary : The story revolves around the life of Phileas Fogg who lives in London. He bets that he can travel around the world in 80 days. It is a crazy and exciting race against time across Europe, Asia, and America. He faces many dangerous trials along his journey, and to add on to this there is a detective/policeman who will chase him and try to arrest him. The question is, is Phileas Fogg going to win his bet ?

Opinion : It is a good idea to make this type of bet, if you are sure to win, if not don’t do it. I like this book because it shows us that you should never give up what you really want to do. If you let go of your dreams, you will probably regret it in the long run! I love the adventure and the constant thrills that this book brings. It was hard for me to put it down !

Will he find the one who killed is father or will he get killed himself ?

In my opinion, the book was  very good because there was always action and suspense. It is not too difficult to understand. I recommend this book to people who like action, suspense and adventure.
