Goodnight Mr Tom
My english class has recently being assigned to read 'Goodnight Mr Tom' by Michelle Magorian. I have already read the book once on holidays but i have read up to chapter 5 in the time span of about a month, and i'm not bored of it! it's a book that i won't get sick of easily.
The book is based on how a poor, shy evacuee who has being treated harshly eases himself into a completely new environment and flourishes in the care of gruff old Mr Tom (Oakely). It is set in a country town in England when World War II is announced.
I think it's a good book because it does not provide too much detail and information and leaves the reader to guess and picture the characters from both the author's and the reader's point of view.
