THE TEXT AND EVEN A BOMB THAT GOES OFF text and even a bomb that goes off a bin in the middle of a shopping mall is called a car bomb If this had been put on here as a self published book I could sort of understand but for a major author to publish this just really beggars belief An interesting and challenging premise which I enjoyed However it was poorly delivered I have been reading classic children s for early teens books to my daughter and this compared poorly in comparison The characters were pretty one dimensional and there was so much misery without let up The love that blossoms between the hero and heroine was consummated in a way that was uite distasteful especially for a book designed for teenagers to read I will not be reading the seuel and will recommend others books to my daughter to read A shame as I say the premise was very interesting Arrived uickly and in condition Very interesting book I am teaching it to my Year 7 English class They enjoying all of the issues it brings up This is a dystopian novel The first in a series The Crosses are the powerful minority in a post apocalyptic society They have the best jobs housing and education The Noughts are their servants They have few rights and are understandably unhappy with their lot The story centres around a forbidden relationship between a Cross girl and a Nought boy It s a complex tale and doesn t have a happy ending Well worth the read My Year 7 s love it. Rcely against them these star crossed lovers choose each otherBut this is love story that will lead both of them into terrible dangerand which will have shocking repercussions for generations to comeVoted as one of the UKs best loved books Malorie Blackmans Noughts Crosses is a seminal piece of YA fiction; a true modern classicUnforgettable GuardianThe most original book Ive ever read Benjamin Zephani.

have any depth as these are all inany depth as these are all in first person narrative style and not done that well The characters are poorly drawn the situations are unoriginal and have been done numerous times before and even the name.

Blackman doesn t waste any time with fluffy stuff that s not relevant et she crafts her characters sodoesn t waste any time with fluffy stuff that s not relevant et she crafts her characters so I felt like I knew them really well by the endI didn t expect the ending either This book is on my daughters KS3 reading list I decided to read it first as it s description gave me concerns over the suitability of it s contents My daughter is 12 I would say that it is an easy read as far as the vocabulary is concerned The subject matter is fairly grown up with racism suicide suicide attempts a terrorist attack hangings as capital punishment and a kidnap However as it is written from the perspective of teenagers it is not too detailed and sympathetically written I will be reading this with my daughter but I
Expect It To Lead Toit to lead to of explanation and discussion As an adult reading this book I found it extremely absorbing and will be reading the rest of the series So it started on TV last week and then over the weekend the book appeared as a daily deal thus leading me to buy it and read it for the first time I had always been led to believe that this was good but to my surprise it is a load of piffle And before someone gets on their high horse and says how wonderful is let me explain This provides us with an alternate world but where there actually should be one there is none as everything here falls into our current world So in reality if the events outlined here did happen not only would things be NOW A MAJOR NEW BBC TV SERIES this edition contains an exclusive A with lead actor Paterson JosephThe Noughts Crosses series are still my favourite books of all time and showed me just how amazing story telling could be Stormzy Stop it Youre all behaving like animals Worse than animals like blankersSephy is a Cross dark skinned and beautiful she lives a life of privilege and power But shes lonely and.
