Greek Heroes Reviews

Samuel 1/5 Boring

Ruben 2.5/5 Great stories, but I didn’t enjoy the factual style

Oliver 1.5/5 Bland

Eva 1/5 Dull

Rakhi 1.5/5 It was a bit disappointing

Having discussed the book, we agreed that it’s great for information. Its’s a great historical text, but if you’re looking for action-packed adventure – this isn’t the book for you!

Groosham Grange

We have finished book one of Groosham Grange and so far we all think it is a very good book!!! We definitely recommend it.

If you have been reading it or you think you are going to read it tell us your opinion. We want to know!!!!!!

The age is definitely going up due to the fact it is getting creepier (especially chapter 6 through till the end of chapter 8)

The age we recommend year 5+ or maybe even higher if you are not into creepy stories.

Greek Heroes – Group 2

The book is getting better but we think it would fit together more if it was written by the same author.

from group 2:)

Groosham Grange – Group 2!

We have read up to Chapter 10 so far. We discussed our initial impressions.

  • We’re all hooked.
  • It is very descriptive
  • It has a lot of show not tell
  • We think that so far the age restriction should be year 5+

We can’t wait for the next chapters!!!

Group 2 Bookclubbers πŸ™‚ Be aware!!!!

We have swapped!

We are now in two smaller sub groups. We have swapped! The group who finished Groosham Grange are now reading ‘Greek Heroes’ and the other way around! We will re-join together to compare both books, when we’re all finished.

Groosham Grange Reviews

Samuel: Β 4.5/5 because Β it wasn’t up to standard but still a brill book.

Eva: 4.5/5 because it was very mysterious and it was a very good book.

Rakhi : 3/5 It was a good book but the ending was to cheesy for my liking.

Ruben: 4.5/5 It had more tension than the first book and it was less predictable.

Ronya: 2.9/5 It was very cheesy and not the best book.

Oliver: 4.5/5 it was a very good book but it could have been better.

Tales Of The Greek Heroes- reviews

Reviews: (our opinion)

Grace 3/5 10 (Fav) It is a bit bland. Could do with more description.

Emily 2/5 11 (Fav) It needs more description and sometimes there is a character which they don’t describe so you have no idea who they are.

Posy 3/5 10 (fav) Personally it is a bit boring but it does tell you the back story of gods and myths e.g. Zeus and the minotaur.

Lulu 2/5 10 (Fav) Personally I think it is a bit long winded but it was a good story line.

Altogether we think it should be based for history lovers and fantasy lovers not really adventure. It looks like it is split up into sections but actually are few are linked together.
