Dinosaurs

イメージ
In the early 19th century, a dinosaur fossil was discovered for the first time. And the name "dinosaur" began to be used by Richar Owen. It is a book that you can learn about history.
When I was young I was attracted to the dinosaurs by watching the movie "Jurassic Park". It was fun to imagine the era when there were dinosaurs by reading this book.

But he finds him dead in his bed, with burned feet.

As the Inspector Said

イメージ
The murder plan seems so neat, so clever. And when Sonia's stupid, boring little husband is dead, she will be free to marry her handsome lover. But perhaps the boring little husband is not so stupid after all.  Reading the mystery is difficult for me, but I could read it with fun.

A Christmas Carol

イメージ
Scrooge says christmas is just a time when we find yourself a year older, and not a penny richer. The only thing that matters to Scrooge is business, and making money. But on Christmas Eve three spirits come to visit him. They take him travelling on the wings of the night to see the shadows of Christmas past, present, and future. Scrooge learns a lesson that he will never forget.
This is the best  I've ever read. Especially I like the character of Scrooge's nephew. This is a heart warming story.

Rabbit- Proof Fence

イメージ
This extraordinary story of courage and faith is based on the actual experiences of three girls who fled from the repressive life of Moore River Native Settlement, following along the rabbit-proof fence back to their homelands.
After reading it, I felt little bit sad. But this story isn't sad, it is a moving story.
