The Truth Machine

'I know the truth about my husband. Now I am very unhappy,' said Mrs Seeker.
'I know the truth about my criminals. Now I haven't got a job,' said Inspector Sack.
'I know the truth about my spy. What shall I do now?' said Dr Simple.

Hello!
This time, I want to write a review about "The Truth Machine", a level two book in the MACMILLAN READERS series.

One day, Professor Verity invented "The Truth Machine". The news was spread all over the world and many letters came to him. Then, he chose three person for experiments. The Truth Machine told them truth, but what do subjects think heard the truth...?

It isn't good to lie, but the truth always makes you happy. I read and thought that there are good cases to tell lies sometimes.

This isn't so long and written like a comedy, so you can read easily and with pleasure.
Please check this!

Thank you for reading.

Capoeira: The Fighting Dance

There are considerable numbers of street kids in parts of Brazil, some of whom have 'disappeared' from official records. Confirming that they have governmental records is very important for the futures of these young people.

Hello!
Today, I want to write a review about "Capoeira: The Fighting Dance", a level four book in the Footprint Reading Library series.

Do you know "Capoeira"?
Capoeira is an usual combination of dance and material arts. It was performed by African slaves in Brazil in the 1800s. So Capoeira has a long history.
This story is to help children, for example, who is living on the street or with drug problems, through Capoeira.

Before reading, I thought that Capoeira was the just one of the sport, but I knew that it helped many people. Also, I'm interested in Capoeira, I want to try to do this!

Thank you for reading.

One Woman's Choice

Whatever Flora decides, she know that she will lose something important: her husband and family, or her past.

Hello!
This time, I want to write a review about "One Woman's Choice", a level four book in the Footprint Reading Library series.

This story is about a woman whose life certainly changed by a choice.
She moved to new villege to live with her husband, but this means that she can't to live with her family. She thought many times and finally, she made a decision what to do in the future.

Of course, I think that this is not an easy question for her. So she went back to home and met her mother to consider it.
I thought that it's important for us to think about problems carefully to make a decision. Also, I believe that she is happy because of her careful consideration.

This story isn't so long, so I think it's not difficult to read.
Please try to read this!

Today, I want to write a review about "Help!", a level one book in the CAMBRIDGE English Readers series.

The main character is Frank, he is a writer. But he never finish his books and he doesn't money. So, his wife is always angry with him.
One day, a letter came to him and he knew that one of his story is going to be a movie...!

But the computer gives him more help than he wants.Then he really needs 'help'!

Jobs

When you are in a city, how can you go from a park to a library?
Maybe you take a bus or a train. Bus drivers and train drivers are doing a job.

Hello.
This time, I want to write a review about "Jobs", a level two book in the Oxford read and Discover series.

There are many jobs and this book is written about them, for example, jobs of making things or at night.

Especially, from this sentences, I thought that jobs are always related to us when we do things. This means that we cannot live unless someone works.
I show an example from this book.

These musicians are working. They are playing instruments. People pay money to watch the musicians.

If someone likes to watch them, we can enjoy. However, we can't enjoy if there aren't person who plays.

I want to get a job and be helpful for people.
Thank you for reading.

The Elephant Man

I say a creature, because it was not a man or a woman, like you or me.

Hello!
Today, I want to write a review about "The Elephant Man", a level one book in the Oxford Bookworms Library series.

This is a true story. Before reading this, I thought that a man with face looked elephant made by chance using something... like magic.
But it was not.
"The Elephant" is a metaphor of a man with ugly looking.

This story starts from an encounter between a doctor named Frederick Treves and a man named Joseph Merrick. Then, Merrick's life is changing to happy.
But, I want you to read in the end of this book because I couldn't expect the scene like this!

In this book, there are some scenes that he did not treat as a man, so some people don't want to read this tragic story.
But I recommend this because I want you to know pleasure of Merrick. For example, he made a friends for the first time and shook his hand.

Thank you for reading.

BACKSTAGE PASS

"I'm sorry.", you say. "I'll put the guitar back."
"No, that was a good riff," the security guard says. "Do you know some other Martians songs?"
"Some?" you say. "I know them all!"

Hello!
This time, I want to write a review about "BACKSTAGE PASS", a book in the Atama-ii Books series.

This is a story about a concert. You and your friend Julie are going to the concert together of the Martians. The Martians are the most famous band in the world, and one of the member, named Hugo, was a hero for you.
When they get to the concert, they saw a backstage door and tried to enter...?

I chose the scene because I was excited the most when I was reading this scene.

There are some different happy end, not one, so I enjoyed the story,too!
But I surprised some of the ends because it was so different between happy and bad end.

I think that this book is easier book in the Atama-ii Books series.
Please try to read and if you have time, try to read all ends!

Thank you for reading.
