When I first started reading The Westing Game, I thought it was just going to be another mystery, where you know who committed the crime halfway through the book. As my class progressed through the book, I started to realize that The Westing Game was much more complicated than I thought. Ellen Raskin, the author, writes so many clues; some are hidden, and some are put right under your nose, but you don’t notice them. Simple words such as rose (don’t worry, this is not a spoiler) suddenly become blaring clues. It’s amazing how such a simple book can be so complex. The Westing Game may seem like just another mystery book, but I strongly recommend that you read it.
In class I am reading Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. It is a really good book. I picked it because it was one of the few books on my bookshelf that I have not read. I did not expect it to be as interesting as it is. There are many suspenseful moments as well as nice moments. I have really enjoyed the book. The author uses many vocabulary words that make her book more interesting. Also, the author is descriptive to make it easier to understand the story. I have not finished the book yet but so far the book is very good. I can’t wait to read the next one!
