I was going on holiday to Canada for 3 weeks in a RV, basically, it's a house on wheels, so I went to pick out a book and straight away Lucas caught my eye! I read the back and it seemed so fun to read, I was in Canada and we went everywhere, we travelled to Calgary, Vancouver, Banff everywhere! There were so many sights to see but I was far more interested in Lucas! I was in a completely different world, I didn't want to put the book down, I thought to myself, okay, I' gonna sop in a minute and after a minute reading something exciting came up and I'm telling ya I would read it for hours and a week in our holiday I finished it, I was so dissapointed! I couldn't read it again because I knew what happened, that's by far my favourite ever book! I love everything about it, the setting, the characters EVERYTHING, I loved Lucas.
But can you believe it? I missed half of the best sights in Canada by reading Lucas! That's how much I liked it.
It's so imaginitive, when I finished the book I bought The Catcher and the Rye and were all stroppy that it wasn't as good as Lucas! Haha!
I say to all readers 12 or oder should read it, it's such an extroardinary book!
PS. My mum was fep of me moaning that there ws nothing to do after i read Lucas she told me to write to Kevin Brooks and make another but BETTER and BIGGER!
I read it last year in school for a project and i absolutly LOVED it!! I litteraly sat at home ALL DAY reading it so i could get to the end and find out what happened; and i really dont like to read, but i was hooked on this book! I even read it at lunch to get more time in in reading it and my friends would laugh at me but i didnt care i was so into it, reading that book i felt like i was right there and seeing everything. Lucas seeemed so 'dreamy' and absolutly delishhh'<3[lol] i wish he was a real person so i could meet him, hes so laid back and real, it sounds crazy but i had a personal connection to him THREW the book! haah! You have NOT lived until you read this book. And when i got to the end, omg it was so sad i was like crying. That was the first book that I really got into and acually made me emotional in some way so that really made me love this book. 3 cheers for you kevin brooks!
Lucas was one of the few books I've read that really made me stop and think about love. Kevin Brooks was very brave to enter a 15 yr. old girls life and has earned my respect for that. LUCAS is a must read for everyone. It has humor, passion, adventure, and honesty. You'll love it.
This book was unlike anything I have ever read. Kevin Brooks captures his characters with so much emotion, reality, and thought. It was awesome. its about 15 year old Caitlin who lives on an English island. She's making a journey from being a child to an adult, and its terribly hard and sometimes quite scary. Then she meets Lucas, a mysterious boy who captures her attention with a great force. He's so mysterious and beautiful, but the rest of the island doesn't feel this way. He's different and they don't like this. Then a sudden tradegy makes the whole town turn on Lucas, and Caitlin wants to protect him. But she also has to protect herself and her family from the town's evil that takes them over. Things are going crazy in her life and things are changing. It's hard to deal.
This story keeps you on the edge of your seat. It has all elements of a great book: romance, emotion, friends, family, fear, sadness, love, and death. It's so realistic and you feel you are actually there every step of the way. It was amazing. You must read it now.
