The Book of Everything
The simplicity of this book was so simple that it was amazing. Thomas's imagination was wild and crazy, and that made him such a creative character that you could just love. Cute funny jokes were cracked, ones that a nine year old would say. He was such a brave little man, and his innocence made him seem vulnerable, which he was, but he was strong to survive what he had been through. He was such a cute little lad, loveable by everyone.
It is awful to know that this story was based on someone's true story, where a little boy wrote all his thoughts into his Book of Everything. The abusive actions of his father was truly heartbreaking. I know that he must of not been the only child to be punished like this, and this book makes want you to go back in time and help this young boy.
I think it was weird that the author described Margot's eyes as being empty when she threatened her father, with no emotion. I think that there should of been at least one emotion churning in her eyes, like hate or some wild glint that was close to the pure animal instinct.
This book gives a view to the children born just after world war two. Some of the families were very religious, and some took it further by punishing the children. This is a great book that everyone must read, for all ages.
