the book "a bride to wiseman's cove" is one of the best books i have ever read it is a book that has everything. its a sad book overall but has a really good story behind it.
carl matt is a boy that isn't confident about himself and has a low self esteem but he learns to like him self while others start to love him as a person and a character. he is a character that has found a place in my heart. he does everything for his brother harley who is a troubled kid because he hasen't got all the love he deserves.
i think all teenagers should read this book beacause i am sure it will touch you hearts like it touched mine.
A Bridge to Wiseman's Cove was a great book as it demonstrates alot oF different issues. Carl saves the red barge, whilst he learns about himself. Releasing the Osprey was the best part as he learnt that he is very simular to the bird, hurt/wounded needs healing, seeing the Osprey free and allowed to be free makes him feel alive whilst sharing emotions with bird.
The book was great!!!There should be A Bridge to Wiseman's Cove 2!!
Most people only read a book when they have to, in English, at School so they are instantly made to hate it no matter how good the book actualy is. THis book is one of those few good books that if you read it without these pressures after you read it you'll just feel like 'wow!'. I love to read all the time and write so i can spot a good book from a mile away. And this book is good!
It's a great book for teenagers around the age of 11-15 it's about all the kinds of issues that each and everyone of us is made to feel at one point or other in life. Being left alone, Rejected, Peer pressure, friendships, love, saddness and much else.
Carl Matt is the unlikly hero of this heartwarming tale. Hes Chubby and dosn't get on well with other kids his own age. His mum had always gone on little 3-7 day holidays just taking off so he and his siblings are used to adbandoment. THen one day Kerry Matt their mum dosn't come back for months so Sarah the oldest packs her brothers off to their aunty Beryl so she can escape like their mum.
So Carl and Harly are shipped off to Wattle BEach when they get their Harly is a trouble maker and Carl is just left out and he's alone this is about Carl and in the background his brother Harley's adventure to truely finding out who they are and being loved.
i love this novel !!!. A Bridge to Wiseman's Cove has inspired me in many ways. The best part about this novel is that it shows the teenage audiences the real meaning of love and hope. The character Carl is the one who has helped most teenagers realise that. I had to read this novel for english and i first thought "hey this book seems really boring" but when i had the chance to read it, then i knew how important it was for me and other students.
If i had the chance to read this novel again i would but too bad that the teacher has to collected it!!! ...lol... well i hope that the other readers' have enjoyed this novel because im quite sure that i did!!!
thank you James Molony for writing a beautiful novel like this!!!
when i read this book first, i found it quite enjoyable. now i completly despise it!!!! we have studied this book so much at school, that i probably know every single word! (i agree that IS sad!!!) it was i repeat was a good story, until we analysed it 20 times, wrote two essays, character reviews, 3 pages of info on the book and a whole buch of other stuff!! this proves my point, over-stydying a novel ruins it. GOOD-DAY!
I chose this book to read. We are also reading this book at school, but I had already read it a couple of times. The main character, Carl Matt, is different to your average hero. Change of build and personality. He has spirit he is an excellent example that not every hero has to look like a hero. James Moloney can really write, I've read a couple of his other books. I recommend this book to anybdy with an open mind to new things. There are thrills all along the way!
This book was really confusing, I dont really understand what a 'barge' is and there were too many complex story lines. It was alright in the way that the popular girl talks to the fat boy because it shows that looks arent everything which is something that people think in High School.
The book was alright, but if I didnt have to complete a test on it I probably would not have finished it. It was kind of boring in some parts and it was hard to see what the point of reading it was. There were too many storylines that gave out all sorts of hidden messages that the reader didnt need to hear.
I had to read this book for school and was reluctant to start reading it, but once I started reading i couldn't put the book down. I thought it was really good, it tackles many issues such as gambling, weight issues, parties and many other things without making it boring. I would reccomend this book to anyone looking for a great read!
i think that this book was put out to target those who have lost their loved ones or that their loved one has abandoned them. This book is alright FOR THOSE WHO LIKE THE BOOK and even if you dnt you can try to be commited to reading because you may need it for years to come.......
