600 pages may seem like a lot of reading for a school book, but when the book is more like a movie it's a different story. The current book of Mr.Fitz 8th grade English class is somewhat of a "legend". We are reading The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. The book is about a boy by the name of, you guessed it, Tom Sawyer. The book follows him on many adventures such as escaping his aunt, descriptively washing a fence, and even going to church. But in all seriousness the book really is more like a movie in your head. The most famous scene is the fence scene where the writer describes a fence 9 feet tall and 13 yards long, though clearly in the picture the fence is not 9 feet nor is Tom 9 feet. I've only read 100 pages in but I truly hopes this book will be worth the read otherwise I'm going to be quite unhappy.
Tom Sawyer is the most unique book that I could of ever read, however the book isn't all that great to be honest. Some places are filled with nonsense while others are covered with old style language and description. Time for me to relate to him. Tom and I aren't so different we both hare work unless we're getting payed and even then we still don't like work. We are both quite deceptive I mean you never heard that, and lastly we both love to have an adventure though I you could say that about anyone.
Overall I like the book in a " wow that kid is just like me" way .
