Dawn of Fear

Sabotaged a tough neighboring gang is to blame A violent clash with the rival gang followed by a long night of bombing close at hand change forever Derek's feelings about the war. DNF did not finishI started reading this AGES ago I was pretty young at the time but I couldn t get into it and it was dark and depressing It s a fictionalized semi autobiography of the author s experiences as a child during the bombing of London in WWII so obviously horrific the so because it s largely true For those interested in such things they might find it interesting But it doesn t seem like it s for children to me anyway and I don t know it just wasn t for me I guess I glanced at the end and it looked pretty sad so I decided not to finishNot rating it since I didn t read the whole thing

Susan Cooper À 6 Summary

Verhead When a bomb hits close to school causing classes to be canceled the boys are overjoyed They can spend the day building their secret camp But when their work on the camp is. I found this book to be very unappealing First it was dry and didn t have anything that hooked me right away Second there was some awfulness that just seemed to grow and grow without much resolution And yes I do understand that most WWII books touch on terrible things there always seems to be some light thrown in as well at least for kids books but this was just lacking Pure darkness with no redemption or explanation for its place in the story I would not recommend Doctors, Ambassadors, Secretaries unappealing First it was dry and didn t have anything that hooked me right away Second there was some awfulness that just seemed to grow and grow without much resolution And yes I do Engendering Song understand that most WWII books touch on terrible things there always seems to be some light thrown in as well at least for kids books but this was just lacking Pure darkness with no redemption or explanation for its place in the story I would not recommend

    Not as sensational as 'The Machine Gunners' less ostentatiously sophisticated than 'Fireweed' but of all the blitz stories I read as a child this is the one that stuck with me most It doesn't seem to have made it onto the popular lists of great WW2 children's literature and unable to remember the title I hadn't tracked it down until stumbling across it in a library a couple of weeks ago What an experience to

    While the peculiar exploits of British children during WWII were commonplace I'm not sure there is room for that many great juvenile historical fiction books describing these times I recently read one of the acknolwedged best The Machine Gunners and this earlier book pales in comparison It's not bad just not great and once you've read one of these so much is redundant

    I read Susan Cooper's fantasy series The Dark is Rising seuence as a teenager but don't remember if I ever read Dawn of Fear At any rate for some reason I kept this very slim volume when the Dark is Rising novels went to the charity shop Having read it again now I rather regret giving away the other booksDawn
