Young-Sup, a boy who lives in Soul, Korea, is a boy who loves kite flying. He is a jealous little boy who thinks that his dad gives his older brother, Kee-sup, everything. When the time comes for the annual kite fighting festival, Young-Sup wants more than anything to fight with his kite in the festival to represent his family. The only problem is that the oldest kid is supposed to represent the family. From jealousy to great ideas, The Kite Fighters is a book with suspense and action packed fun.


 


I think that the book, The Kite Fighters was a great book with suspense and action. This is a book that the action isnt as in fighting with swords, but with kites. I love this book because it is the type of book that if you are reading a book in a group, you will be suspicious on what will happen next, and you can have the fun a little at a time. I also like this book because it is a book where if you read the whole book at the same time, you will be begging for more. I think that it is a great book because it resembles the life of how two brothers in the present time now, could live from fights to fun. I think that this is a great book because it never gets dull at all. It keeps going with suspense and action.


 

I would recommend this book to those kids who dont like action as in bloody violence, but action as in fighting, but with kites. I think that those kids who like books that have a scenario that could happen in real life. I think that this is a book for kids who have a couple of challenging words, but not as in they dont understand one thing about the book because of the words. I think that you would like this book if you like suspense as in, what is going to happen next? I really like the book, The Kite Fighters, and I recommend this book to everyone.

This book is about a boy named Young-sup and is brother Kee-sup. Young-sup is better at flying kites than his brother. Kee-sup is 14, and young-sup is only 12. Young-sup thinks that his brothers life is better and that he gets to go everywhere yet he doesnt get to go anywhere when Kee-sup does.                         

 
I think you will like the book because if you like suspense you will love this book but if you like to read books from beginning to end then you will not like the book so if you like to read books from beginning to end then stay away and dont bother to buy the book.                                                                                                       

I think that this book is good for people that like kites and for people that like suspense. I also think that people that like to read books from beginning to end will not like this book because then you wont get all the suspence and youll miss out on the best parts about the book and wont get to think about what will happen next in the book.

         Two brothers share an unbreakable bond for kite flying. They have two special abilities, and they are Young sup is a master at kite flying. Kee -sup can make a kite fit for a king. Can they combine their abilities, and do well, even with Young-sup staying in 2nd for his brother, so he can win and represent the family? Or will Young-sup take over?


            I think that people who like a nice, happy ending book, would like this book very much, like I did. It was a very good, happy book, although there were some parts that bored me. Like the part when Kee-sup took SO much time on making both of the kings kite, and his brothers kite.


            I recommend this book if you like brotherly bonds, or books that everything turns out alright for all of the people in it. BUT, if you like books when people pass away, or horror books when people scream. This is a book recommended for people between 3rd and 6th grades.

Set in the late 1400’s in Korea, The Kite Fighters is a story about two brothers, and their love for kites. Young-Sup, the younger of the two is a better kite flyer, but his older brother, Kee-Sup, is more talented at constructing kites. One day while flying a kite, the king passes by, and joins them. The brothers and the king become friends, and after seeing Young-Sup’s skill, asks the brothers to secretly fly for and represent him at the kite fighting competition. During such competitions, kite flyers try to maneuver their kites in such a way that they can cut their opponent’s kites free, or send them to the ground. The team works on perfecting a kite and come up with some clever tricks to help increase their chance of winning—while still abiding to the rules of competition.

But according to tradition, the older brother represents the family and should be the one to fly the kite, but Young-Sup is a better kite flyer. Young-Sup is angry that his brother will fly, but what can he do about it? Will he be able to fly the kite? Or will he have to watch his brother fly it?

The Kite Fighters was a wonderful story! Kite fighting is a unique tradition and an exciting display of skill! A brilliant novel full of friendship, determination, and tradition, The Kite Fighters deserve a 5 out of 5!

   The kite fighters is about two brothers. The older one receives an awesome kite, but is a terrible flyer. Young-sup, the younger one is a great flyer. The problem is the older son represents the family. Will he win the fight? Find out in The kite fighters!


 


My opinion is, I didnt think I would like it. It turned out really good. It did seem boring at some points, where they were not doing much. I would rate this a four, five being the best.   


 


       What I think of this is if you like action or modern day adventures, dont read this. If you like historical fiction and not much action, go ahead, read. This would be perfect for you.

Back in Seoul, Korea in 1473, two brothers are excited about the kite fights of the new year. Young-sup is a flawless expert at kite flying, but is under-rated by being the second son born, which is a law by tradition. Kee-sup has trouble flying, but can design a high-flying kite. These two relatives make a perfect team. But unfortunately, Kee-sup must be ahead of Young-sup. Will the law be broken? Read to find out!                                                          This ancient novel has a lot to say. That is why it has become a Yearling. These two boys that are brothers take the story on for a roller coaster. All in between there are arguments, loving moments and a new invention. The feelings are the corkscrew. Jealousy, happiness, sadness and even mixed emotions! Once youre finished, youll be wiped out!                                                                                                                                                As I conclude, this novel has many ancient cultures. If anybody wants to learn a little about ancient Korea, The Kite Fighters is a great book. But remember, DONT read it for top info. This is also not for action nor romance. But if you want a brotherly story, youll cherish every word.

Kee-sup is a boy who loves to make things. Young-sup is the opposite of Kee-sup, Young-sup likes to fly things. Young-sup gets really jealous one day when Kee-sup gets a Kite, but Young-sup keeps telling Kee-sup that Young-sup himself should be the person who gets the kite. Will they get to do what they want to do, or will Young-sup have to make the kite and will Kee-sup has to fly it? Read the book to find out!


 


I think this book was GREAT!!!  I loved how the main characters (Kee-sup and Young-sup) met a bunch of new people, and those people made the story better! They run into some people who you would never have thought they would run into in this book.


 


I think you would like this book if you like books that have people that switch places also if you like books about people fighting there feelings, or fighting In a sport. You wouldnt like this book if you like mysteries or if you dont like historical fictions!!!


                                                  Read this book today!

This book takes place in ancient Korea wear two brothers that are opposites work together to compete the kite festival. Kee-sup gets a kite for new years celebration and is not very good. But Young-sup is .so him and his brother go flying kites one day and the king sees the kites and asks if he could have one. And when it was finished the king realizes he will win Young-sup has to do a favor.


 


I think this is an awesome book. Because it takes place in ancient Korea and has very good language of the discipline. It is one of top ten books in my list. I was thinking, what was going to happen? or why not?.


 


I think that someone who doesnt like too much action and likes books about opposite characters would enjoy this book.  I you like things from ancient times you will like this book.
