The Book Thief
by Iria Fernández González, 3rd ESO B
The name of the book is "The Books Thief" and the author is Markus Zusak.
The book is a drama during the Second World War. The main character is a German girl, whose name is Liesel. Liesel checks the passion for reading and she shows us the life of German people. She's 9 years old.
The things I liked most are that the originality of this book is that the narrator of the story is the death, and also Liesel's passion for reading.
All in all, I really liked the novel and I'd recommend this book to everyone who likes to read because this novel is very entertaining and different from other books.
Guárdate de los Idus
by Iago Villaverde Rodríguez, 3rd ESO B
I'd like to recommend a book which I read recently called "Guárdate de los Idus". The author of the book is Lola Gándara and the book has got a hundred and sixty-six pages.
The book is a historic novel about Rome in the last days of the Republic. Druso and Porcia are the main characters and they feel important changes in their lives because their uncle Mario was involved in the death of Julius Caesar.
The things I liked most about the book are the reality with which the author describes us the situation. The characters are very sensitive and the stories are good and interesting.
I think that the end was very good and I would like if the author publishes a sequel of the book.
Hindenbury, the Last Flight
by Enrique Osorio Feijoo, 3rd ESO A
I'd like to recommend a film which I saw last Saturday called "Hindenbury, the Last Flight". The director of the film is Philip Kadelbach.
This film is a historic drama about the disaster of Hindenburg in 1937. The main character is the designer of the Zeppelin, called Merten Gruger. He finds a bomb in the Zeppelin and he defuses it but the fire of San Telmo burns the hydrogen cells and it explodes.
The thing I liked most about the film was the explosion. The producers have used a lot of gas!!
All in all, I really liked the film and though it hasn't got a happy ending, I wouldn't change it.
The books of Harry Potter
by Iago López Lamas, 3rd ESO A
I'd like to recommend some books which I read three months abo. They are the six books about the life of Harry Potter. The author of the books is called J. K. Rowling.
The book is a fantasy and mystery and the setting is London in the first years of the 21st century. Harry is the main character and he lives with his aunt and uncle because his parents died when he was a baby. One day, his life changes when he receives a letter from Howarts, the school of magic.
The things I liked most about the books were the fantasy things and the mystery in all the books. The plot was very interesting and the characters like Ron are sometimes funny.
I really liked the books, because ther is a lot of love, mystery action and fantasy and though it has a really happy ending, I love that.

Last Friday, we had to say good bye to our first language assistant in Santo Ángel.
Nithin Ravi arrived last October to help us, teachers and students, learn and love English language.
As a colleague, I can only say good things about him. He was open and eager to talk to everybody, he was full of great ideas to put into practise in class, he always solved my questions, he was funny and I really believed he has left an impression in our school.
As regards to children, he has been a breath of fresh air for them. They enjoyed his classes so much that they were really disappointed whenever he couldn't attend to school. He made them talk in English, he made them laugh and he made them enjoy the language a little bit.
On our last class, he had the wonderful idea of asking the students to create something similar to a Year Book, and students just loved it!! Some of them wrote very special and deep messages to him (even to me!!). I must say here that they never stop surprising me.
I think it's been a special year for all of us and this is in part thanks to you, Nithin. You have set such high standards that our next year's assistant will have to fight it hard!!!
Thank you, good luck in everything you do in life and come to visit us again!!
