The latest from the OPLbery Club

The OPLbery Club met today and had some very lively discussions on a number of books. Some of the kids had read the same books and had very different reactions.

Olivia said Three Times Lucky was a “pretty good mystery.” She also read Wonder and thought it was “really, really good and “not predictable”.” Madison also read Wonder but thought it was “just okay.” Skyler thought Wonder was “pretty good.”

Eric said that Cabinet of Earths was an “okay” mystery. He thought Neversink was “really good and possibly OPLbery-worthy.” Lucas disagreed and said Neversink was “not so good,” and the “characters were undeveloped.”

Elliot read Last of the Gullivers and thought it was “good, but sometimes boring.” He also read The Amazing Adventures of John Smith, Jr., aka Houdini and said it was “a sad story.”

Giancarlo read The One and Only Ivan. He thought it had a “pretty powerful message,” and “lots of emotion.” He said “you get sucked into the story.”

Lara read Bliss, which she said was “very interesting,” and “sad, happy, exciting, and sometimes creepy.” Elena read Bliss, too, and said it was interesting. Elena also read Jake and Lily, which she said was funny.

Brandon read Titanic: Voices from the Disaster. He said it was “really descriptive,” and although it was “slow at first” it was “extraordinary.” He also read The Invisible Tower, and thought it was a good adventure.

Ania read Winterling, a mystery with magic, and said it was “fast-paced, sometimes scary, and good.”
