I like this book because of the characters. They were able to be nice and even make jokes when they were in one of the worst situations ever. There was a sense of dreadfulness that hung throughout this book. The entire plot was very excellent. The contrast between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ evened out in the end. I find that it was a good book for one to learn about history and enjoy it at the same time. I don’t recommend it for anyone under the age of 13-14.
