Outside Reading --2nd Quarter

My second quarter outside reading book:

Title: Broken Prey

Author: John Sandford

Year Published: 2006

Genre: Fiction

Number of Pages: 481 pages

Proof that Book is Challenging: This book is considered "Adult Fiction", both have my parents have read this book as well, and then while reading the introduction page the wording of the passage, the tone used, and then the imagery used created a very vivid picture in my mind as to the setting, time, place, and characters of this book. The book doesn't seem too easy, it does remind me very much of a Stephen King book or a J.R.R. Tolkien passage. "Broken Prey" is a book with nonstop tension and detail.

Why I Chose This Book: I chose this book because I am a lover of horror stories (I'm a huge Stephen King fan....sadly all of his books were first published many years ago) and also because my dad suggested it. Another reason as to why I chose this book was because it was the only one in my house that was published in either 2006 or in 2007. And finally, I also chose this book because of the fact that it was a murder mystery, and I love books that are thought provoking; I also liked the fact that it is set in Minneapolis.

Sounds like a good book for you to read. I hope you enjoy discussing it with your parents.
