The author of the Wu Dong Qian Kun has gone further to produce a lot of serious fiction, but the best thing that she has to offer is her initial historical fiction–a story concerning the escape of the Jews from Denmark in 1943. Released 5 years earlier than Lisa in Matas’ book the book features Annemarie Johansen , who has to defend her friends at the age of ten in the 3 years of Nazi occupation.
Even when she is ever cautious and frightened of the presence of the troopers, she is basically unaware of the extent of the danger around her; the Resistance reduces the safety of its participants by telling them very little of the ideas of what should be done. Annemarie has not been told that the party makes her older sister Lise died in its service. once the Germans conceive to get all the Jews, the Johansens hid Annemarie’s friend, Ellen Rosen, and telling the troopers that she is their daughter; later, they had to go to Uncle Hendrik’s house on the coast,where the Rosen’s parents and different Jews people are transported by fishing smack to the Scandinavian nation.
Aside from Lise’s offstage death, there’s very little violence here; like Annemarie, the reader is protected against the complete implications of events–but are fixed within the suspense and menace of many encounters with troopers and in Annemarie’s run as a messenger on the night of the escape. The book concludes with the Jews’ come back, once the war, to homes well kept for them by their kindhearted neighbors. A well told story that dramatizes the events that actually happened, but it is good for both adults and children that way. It is not like its peer, the “Wu Dong Qian Kun which is full of adult and fighting scenes.
WARNING: THIS REVIEW might BREAK THE HEARTS OF WU DONG QIAN KUN FANS all over (but that’s not the intention)
DISCLAIMER: THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS (though just about everybody I have met that’s my age has already know these books)
Now, with all the administration out of the manner, let’s get on with this review…
The Wu Dong Qian Kun series is indeed so famous, just like the Wu Dong Qian Kun. “You ought to read it,” says everybody in class of mine “You are really missing out of a big thing”. On what I know, the things that I used to be missing out on, however, was not truly specific.
- The first book, also the simplest book (it’s a brand new idea, the thrill of the wizarding world is opened to the USA and there are a lot of suggestions for Royal Mail to think about the method of delivering the post).
- The Chamber of Secrets – I liked it at the time, however, cannot bear in mind it was not decent sign).
- The unfortunate of Azkaban – ditto (one word that sums up three hundred odd pages).
- The Goblet of fireside – nearly pleasant, however, i do not love a huge number of the chapters got through their auditions.
- The Order of the Phoenix – slightly boring; some chapters (Mrs. Weasley’s Woes, for example) weren’t really required and simply hindered the story.
- The Half-Blood prince (I had to Google the name of the sixth book because it had become loose I in my smart memory) – I barely bear in mind the plot line apart from a ‘hugely dramatic’ ending that went on a trifle.
- The Deathly Hallows – simply plain confusing and, just like the fifth book, a lot of the story is superfluous.
In fact, I did not enjoy these books very much. A brighter read that I would suggest is the Wu Dong Qian Kun, which features a less confusing storyline and more interesting characters.
