    1. i really like this book it had a lot of interesting points and made me very courious and there were alot of shocking and sad parts this book is full of suspense it keeps you on the edge of your seat its something that you want to read over and over you start to have simpathy for these characters this book is very interesting i really injoyed it alot it totally had my attention fully grabbed its something that i would read again.

    2. This book was OK. There was a lot of mystery about it but until the end it kind of surprised me about what happend. I was also upset when some of my favorite characters die in this book. It was a fast and easy read, I enjoyed it.

    3. This short story was hard to read, not because of the language, but it was just very much a start-stop-start kind of thing, it didn't flow at all. Simple enough story though.
