In this nothing-but-dialogue filled novella, a scientist tells his followers all about his magnificent machine and his adventures in the future. Prepare to be bored out of your mind. “The Time Machine” gets 2 out of 5 stars from me.
“Planet of the Apes” was somewhat of a fast read, while still maintaining a deep and impactful message. I thought that among the books that I had to read for school, it was one of the better ones.
(PS ~ Y’all, the original “Planet of the Apes” movie, released in 1968, is pretty awesome, in my very humble opinion. Check out the wikipedia entry here and see below for a YouTube trailer!)
I read “The Outsiders,” a book published in the 1960s, in English class this year. It was interesting to relate the older topics in the book to contemporary times. The phrase stay gold meant a lot to me and my classmates.
(PS ~ “The Outsiders” is a rocking book with an absolutely FANTASTIC movie that you must check out as soon as possible! See the trailer below!)
“Something Wicked This Way Comes” is amazing. It is kind of creepy, captivating, and thought provoking. The plot takes lots of unexpected twists and turns. The characters are very realistic, and they each have their individual faults. I loved all the descriptions and the way that Ray Bradbury always seems to use just the right words. All in all, I loved “Something Wicked This Way Comes.”
