Hey There Delilah!
Nobody guessed what song I was singing in my last post. You know, it went “Hey hey, do do do do dooo do”. It’s Memories by Kid Cudi and David Guetta.
You get a big smack if you don’t guess what song the first three words of this post [not title] are from.
Book Review; Deep Secret by Berlie Doherty
To be upfront honest, I didn’t find this book particularly engaging. We are quickly introduced to twins Madeleine and Grace, as well as the rest of their farm village, including Colin, Seth and Dora Proctor.
A shocking bombshell is dropped that changes this book. Secrets emerge. They develop.
This book is loosely based on the flooding of a village due to the construction of a dam. The characters in this book were quite believable. I really think Dora is an interesting character, as was Seth. I wish the latter got more “screen time” in the book, if you know what I mean =] I hate Oliver, and originally hated Colin but as the book progressed and he gained some “imperfect” and “humanly” characteristics I grew to like him.
I thought this book was stretched out way too much. I didn’t really fancy the ending much; I found it quite predictable. However, I was shocked to hear about Oliver’s fate.
Berlie Doherty has a great skill in painting vivid pictures of scenarios through her wonderful language and I applaud her for conveying her feelings so expertly.
Long weekend; Monday is Labour Day. Unfortunately I have 2 SACs on Tuesday [SACs stands for School Assessed Classwork which is basically a test or assignment or exam that you need to score pretty well on because it goes towards your final VCE mark.] so I don’t think I’ll be posting much on the weekend. Sorry ~
