Reader reviewed by Rachel

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

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 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.

Im in year 9, and i am amazed with such a beautiful book of "A bridge to wisemans cove". Of how people could be "set free" from despare. Its remarkable how such a small book could fit all these emotions like despare, happiness, relief, etc. I think this book is a classic book suitable for young adults, and a testimony to the ingenius mind of James Moloney.

I,a devoted reader have NEVER come across a book such as this one. Nearing the end of the book it inticed me to read me out of pure curiousity, though disappointed me to find that it was nearly the end.I sincerely hope their will be a part two of this book.This book is about a broken family which doesnt fit the general characheristic of a normal family. The mother Kerry Matt abandons her children and has left the eldest daughter Sarah to look after the two boys.

Carl Matt and his younger brother Harley Matt arrive in Wattle Bay, only to be greatly dispiced by the locals, and inherits a shamelful reputation that his previous family members have left him. A scar. A curse. A calssic story of a young boy striving to be a better person, and in the process... frees many people from despare.

Reader reviewed by Nick Rokkas

The beginning of the book is slightly difficult to understand and it takes a while to get into the mood of the book. However, as the book progresses, the story develops with more sophistication, more realism and the plot thickens. This book has Good VS Evil, with characters such as Aunt Beryl and Bruce Trelfo portraying unrepentant, stubborn, indignant characters, compared to characters like Joy Duncan who are remorseful, caring and treat people the way they deserve to be treated.

Like a normal book which has a deep, thorough plot, the book continues to convey a sad, lost, hostile lifestyle until the climax of the book, when tragedy strikes and all is revealed.
