  • Did this book hold your attention?  Yes
  • Was the story what you expected it to be? Were you disappointed? Surprised? The ending really was sticking out because I thought Walter would’ve saved Archie but he didn’t.
  • Do you think that the book was suitable for your age? Too violent, swearing, sex, etc.: I think this book is suitable for my age because there was no sex or swearing but there was some violence.
  • Did you like/dislike the book? Why? I liked this book because it was a story where you can’t predict what would happen next because there would be random stuff happening at any time.
  • Who would you recommend this book to, even if you disliked it? Give an example: I would recommend this book to someone who likes mystery types of books.
  • Was the book part of a series? Is it a book that you have to read the previous/following book to understand the plot? Or is the story self-contained? The story itself is self-contained.
