Skulduggery Pleasant series by Derek Landy.   

Book review by Hanna Sojka (Yr 9).   

To readers who are above the age of 10, I recommend the book series Skulduggery Pleasant. It's about a regular girl, Stephanie Edgeley, who after her uncle's death is thrust into a world of magic, adventure and, sometimes, gore. She joins Skulduggery Pleasant, the skeleton detective, who is a detective, sorcerer and, yes, dead. Funny quips, interesting characters, an engaging story. What more could you possibly want?

Life of Pi by Yann Martel  

Book Review by Rohan Sahni (Yr 8).

Martel spent a year in India to write the novel. Martel claims, “Because I was in India, it got me intrigued by religion and that also led me to write Life of Pi and also changed my life.” Francis Adirubasamy is the one who introduced the story. I really appreciate the building up of Pi being stranded and isolated in the middle of nowhere. I also find the protagonist's state of mind very intellectual and riveting. In addition, the sinking of the Tsintum was unexpected. What I enjoyed of the book is Pi trying to get along with a 450-pound tiger who is fierce and starving. It is very stupefying. What I did not enjoy is that there is too much thriller of Richard Parker as his movements and descriptions scare anyone easily or make one frightened. But overall, I found this book very intriguing and interesting. 

 

Reading the rocks : how Victorian geologists discovered the secret of life by Brenda Maddox 

Book review by English teacher Marvin Deahan 

A gripping account of the relationship between geology and biology in the nineteenth century. This is a fascinating tale of how – by opening up long eons of time, reading the fossils, and emphasizing how current processes explain the past – the study of geology created the climate in which the theory of evolution of species could simultaneously occur to both Darwin and Wallace. The author covers Darwin's early career as a geologist well and is excellent on the relationship between Darwin and his contemporary, Lyell; lifelong friends and fellow scientists. A highly readable story of how key figures in the history of science realised and then proved that the earth is billions of years old, and how it got to be this way.
