Challenge for Day 5

Leave a book review

Did you know? Book reviews help other readers discover new books. For today’s challenge, we encourage you to write a review of a book you’ve read during the readathon (or recently) and publish it where other readers make their purchasing decisions (e.g., Amazon, Goodreads, etc.). Be sure to share it with us in the comments below or on social media.

Thanks to J. Lenni Dorner for today’s challenge

My review is on goodreads:

So much fun for retelling. I really enjoyed it and I think anyone else who loves a good pride and predjudice retelling will to.
Pride and Prejudice is Austen’s look into the absurdity of the time with a touch of humor.  Such as, Mrs. Bennett’s obsession in finding wealthy husbands for her girls and the posh society of the Darcy’s that many a fortune hunter aspires to. Eligible is a tribute to this very well known story while still being a very fresh take in its own right.

Although, I did find fault with some of the story. I think the author while trying to be original was maybe a little two politically correct. I just found that trying to hit all the social issues in the world was just too much for one family, even the Bennett’s.

Synopsis Rewrite

For this challenge, all you have to do is rewrite the synopsis of a book from another character’s point of view. Make it their story instead. If you post on social media, be sure to use #synopsisrewritebob20 to share.

My Rewrite ( Skybreaker by Kenneth Oppel):

My name is Matt Cruse I am currently attending the Airship Academy in Paris. While travelling through a storm in the Indian Ocean, my training vessel comes upon the Hyperion, a long-lost ship said to be carrying great riches.  The captain of this training ship almost killed us all by trying to go after the Hyperion.  I took matter into my own hands against captains orders and had the ship descend.  I return back to Paris where I have a nasty run in with pirates who want the coordinates of the Hyperion’s last known where-abouts.  I also me a mysterious girl who says that she would like to go after the Hyperion with me and split the treasure.  I go to see Kate de Vries,  my very close friend and possibly more to help me figure out what to do. This is were my story takes off I go to find the Hyperion with Kate and other companions and we encounter more danger, more creatures and I may even have in counter a new love interest.  Well you will just have to read my story to find out how it all turns out!
