I thought that this was a fantastic book and whoever wrote that terrible comment obviously didnt understand the concept. It was a book about feeling, it was unisex so anybody could read it and be interested and I think that I would definitely reccomend this book to anyone who likes a good, realistic and relating story. It is about a boy called Carl who's mother runs away. He has a brother called Harley and a sister called Sara who also ran away because she didnt want to look after her brothers for the rest of her life.
Carl tackles some moving issues that if you thought about it, you wouldnt want to be in his shoes and I mean ever. At the start his life is a mess but he gets through some pretty tough times with a curse upon his entire family that his grandfather started but obviousy never ended. READ IT!
I have recently had to read a bridge to Wiseman's cove for enlgish at school. With all the books i've had to read for english assignments i was pleasantly surpirsed when i was reading A.B.T.W.C. I was hooked from the first page, with a mysterious starting and a dramatic ending i thought this was a great read. I myself don't read anything much other than fantasy and for me to enjoy this was a big thing. I finished it in about 2 days ( just wanting to be able to start the questions) I liked this book because it wasn't like a usual teenage book, it made you think about people and families in a not so cheesy way. For my assignment i have to do 2 essays some creative tasks and chapter questions. I feel however that i want to write these essays because i have so much to say about this book.
i thought a bridge to wiseman's cove was a great and worthwhile read
This book is really good for young to old readers. It has a good story line and a very good plot. This book has some really good symbols in it. I this that everyone should read this book. It makes you think that your life is not so bad.
Well I thought this book started off pretty slowly but um once i got into it i couldn't stop. It's actually an alright book but it was quite sad also. You should start every book with a positive attitude or else you won't even reach the last page like the other chick. Anyways do what ever you want.
i had to read this book for an english assignment and at first i thought i was really boring but as i kept reading i got really into it and i couldn't stop reading. it really was an interesting book about the struggles of teenage life, moving from a different city to a new one. and all the other struggles that a 15 year old boy could have.
A Bridge to Wiseman Cove is a very was a very touching story and really opened my eyes to how kids and teenagers must feel when they are deserted by their guardians.
At the start of the story, it was really intriging how James Moloney described what the matt kids acted like and knew about each other. While getting into the heart of the story the author described the characters feelings in a very descriptive way which really let me understand the story more and more.
My fave part of the story was in the end when things were finally turning around with Carl. he had recognised and acknoledged all the bad things of being a Matt and had overcomed them and dat people is one of the greatest acheivements of all.
I think this is a book everyone should read because it has somethink for everyone in it, Harley is my favrouit persone because he gets into lots of trouble all the time. Aunt Berrly is the worst out of the lot she is a witch she hates neally everyone and all she wants is money and a boyfriend.
My teacher made me read it, so we could do work on it, and i don't blame him for making us read it, for a change i liked a book and i don't read for engoyment i read because i have to.
A brige to wisemans cove was about a boy carl who went to live with his aunt after his mother and sister both took off. i thought it was an alright book for someone in there teens. its an easy storyline to pick up and you can easily get into the book..
I loved the book A bridge to Wiseman's cove, all of the detail James Moloney, went into for describing the feelings of the characters, especially Carl. I would love to see this book optioned, or maybe even a sequel, it was that good. The English class that I am in is reading this book, so when I looked on the internet I found pictures of what James Moloney wanted certain scenes in the novel to look like and that is exactly how I pictured them. However I didnt really like the ending the readers didnt found out what happened to Sarah, Harley and Aunt Beryl when/if they found out about their mothers death, what happens with Carl and Justine and What happens to Skip, Joy and Maddie Duncan.
To Lauren, first of all, you obviously don't pay attention to the meaning or message a book holds. Because if you did, then you would know that A bridge to Wiseman's Cove is a great book for it is very meaning ful. From maria
