Book Review


A book review helps others decide whether or not they should read text. The review should do these three things:


1. Summarise the story - What was the story about? hat genre is it (comedy, adventure, horror, fantasy)? 


2. Give your opinion of the characters - Who were the main characters? Did you like them or did they do something that annoyed you? What are their personalities like? 


3. Give your opinion on the way the story has been written - Did the story have good pace between events? Did events happen too quickly or too slowly? Was there enough detail? What did the author write well?


Using the book you have just read or one of the novels we read in class (The Polar Bear Explorers' Club or Charlotte's Web), write a review for one of your classmates. 


Not all reviews have to be positive! Sometimes a story just doesn't hook us.
