Reader reviewed by Claire

I didn't think much of A Bridge to Wiseman's Cove at first. To me it was just an ordinary boring English book that was compulsery to read for the school. I picked up like I was going o die of boredom by the first page, but it wasn't like any other book I read. I turned to the prelude (which I normally don't bother reading). At withing the first line of words it captivated me and took my breath away. Yes it wasn't like books like Twilight where it gets the whole world stirring but this book is unique, it has this special way of relating to everyone. Carl's life is so sad and it makes you want to keep on reading every page just in hope that it will only get better. I wouldn't recommend the book to people who don't like reading because they will not understand the themes and attidues of loneliness, hatred and unrequited love. But to everyone who does love reading grab the book out of your library, go buy it or order it somehow. This book will never be forgotten, well at least not with me.
