Book
review
Tipo de curso: terico.
Crditos: Dos (2).

A book report gives the author's name, the book title, and says what the book is
about.
Read this book report by one of last year's students.
TITLE: Jaws
AUTHOR: Robert Benchley
TYPE OF BOOK: Adventure
CONTENT: It's about a big shark which eats people when they are swimming.
OPINION: I liked the story. It was exciting and a bit frightening. I've seen the film that was good too.
Answer these questions about the book report.
1. What is the book about?
2. Who wrote it?
3. What did the student think about the book?
4. Was it a love story?
Now read this book review by another student.
"I didn't like the story about the ship; it was boring and the pictures in it
weren't very good. J.R Smith wrote "The Sinking of the Titanic" because his
father was killed when the ship hit an iceberg. More than 1,000 people died
when the ship sank. I don't like True Life stories - I prefer adventures."
The book review is a bit mixed up. Rewrite the information under the headings
below.

Part Four

Advertisements

Advertisements are written to try and make us buy something. The words in an
advertisement give us a very clear idea of the product, and really make us want to
have it. Look at this example of an advertisement for ice cream:

"Cool, delicious Strawberry Surprise. What could


be nicer on a hot summer's day?"
