Anna, Oxted


Rook is a good book in the sense that it deals with bullying, learning difficulties and that awkward side of love no-one really writes about. Rook had funny aspects, sad aspects and parts that really made you think. The detail about Kenny, Nicky and their dad dealing with money problems was a good thing to include, because it affected the story line and how the characters dealt with their problems. On the other hand, the main plot line of Nicky's problem with Stanno was not very well described but at the same time very long-winded, it was a lot of description but none of it really made sense when connecting to the other parts of the book. Since lots of other things were being described at the same time, it got confusing very quickly. The book was a strange length, it was so short that the other stories happening around the plot line were not described in enough detail. I think if Nicky's problems were focused on a bit less the other minor plot lines would have made more sense and I would have enjoyed the book a lot more.
