The International bestseller book Wonder in my words is a really wonderful book. When I start a book I check the count on its pages and in this book there are 400 plus pages, it gave me a liitle heartache but as I began reading it, pages turned one after one and I finished it in just one day. Yes, the book is that good and here my Wonder Book Review will say it all on why I loved this book a lot.
Before I begin the review there is a question for all of you readers, Have you ever seen a deformed person ?
What were the thoughts in your mind at that point ? Were you looking to their deformed part hiding and gossiping silently about their deformed mouth or body at their back ?
I am expecting a yes from all of you on this answer. It is common in many of us to do the same but we all forget this that we are hurting that person by doing so. It wasn’t his mistake that he is deformed or lost a body part in an accident.
Wonder Book Review –
The book wonder is story of August, a deformed boy who was born deformed by face. He spent early years of his childhood at home, His mother taught him school lessons at home but when he was growing up it was decided to sent him to school.
He was a strong boy but he was nervous, because up to now he was always around his family. Going out of home taught him about the nature of outside people.
His parents, the principal of the school and few students like Summer they hold to be my favorite characters from the book. I love the scene where the school goes for a trip and they watch a movie at midnight on projector under the sky and blanket of stars. The book also describes the love for animals. I loved August bonding with his pet. August as a character was a very strong boy, a booklover, a deformed boy who shined bright because he didn’t care what the world has to offer him, he was always enthusiastic and whenever he felt low him mom was always there for him as his inspiration.
There are many favorite quotes that inspires us. The story of Julian’s granny was very close to me and overall the book conveys a message that is to be Kind above everything in life. Kindness is a rarity and can take you to a different height.
I loved the concept of Mr. Browne. He advised his students on class one to write a postcard from where ever the students are on their vacation and had to write something new that they learned through out the year. So I thought to try this too.
Do you write quotes on postcards, if yes then share some, I will enjoy reading them.
