Summer Reading Book Reviews

The Falconer’s Knot by Mary Hoffman  falconer's knot

The main character is Silvano who is a very wealthy boy. He is in love with a woman who is married to a sheep farmer. The farmer is killed and every one in the town believes that it is Silvano that killed him. So Silvano's father sends him to a friary where he has to stay until the crime is solved. When he is in the friary there is a lot of murders. Will Silvano return home? Will the murders be solved? I just gave you a preview of the book The Falconer's Knot by Mary Hoffman. I really liked this book and it is a little love but, a lot of murders, too. It is a good book and I LOVED IT. Review by Conor

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams hitchhiker

Arthur Dent thought that it was going to be just another normal Thursday –that is, until his strangely unhumanlike friend Ford Prefect told him that the Earth was going to be destroyed. Ford and Arthur are forced to hitchhike across the galaxy, and encounter strange and repulsive creatures alike. They find out the meaning of the universe, just how the Earth was created, and are even tortured by Vogan poetry, the third worst thing in the universe. A hilarious novel by Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is a book that you have to read, or you’ll never din out the importance of bringing a towel with you while you hitchhike across the universe.

Mines of the Minotaur by Julia Golding        mines

I just finished Mines of the Minotaur. It was about a girl named Connie. She has friends that are mythical creatures. She loves her life, but when she is sleeping, her enemy, Kullervo, gets her to summon a storm. In the end, Connie is very hurt. Her friends must do something to keep her safe. I really liked this book. I just stayed up all night reading it! I liked how her best friend, Col, did everything to keep her safe. Review by Rachel
