LEO Prewriting Questions for Book, Movie, or Play Reviews.



1. WHAT ´S IT CALLED? WHO´S IT BY? WHAT KIND OF BOOK IS IT?

The tittle of the book I´ve read was “Lord Jim” by Joseph Conrad. It was a book about adventures that Jim lived in all of his life.



2. WHAT´S IT ABOUT?

Jim was a boy who liked books of ships and exciting stories of the most important captains and theirs big and heavy ships.
When he was only 16 years old he worked as a chief mate in a small ship called “Patna”, but Jim lost his job because the ship sank.
Jim knew a man whose name was Marlow. Marlow helped him to find a job on a ship or in ports. But people didn´t want to pay Jim because everybody knew about the disaster of the “Patna”, so Marlow helped Jim and he sent Jim to Patusan where he found a job with a man called Doramin.; he was a good friend of Jim.
In Patusan there were lot of wars between Doramin and the Raja, who was an evil boy. Jim helped Doramin to attack and beat the Raja.
Also Doramin had a son and he wanted to fight and Jim let him. But, when Doramin´s son died fighting, his father was very sad and he had his revenge killing Jim.
Jim died.


3. WHAT DID YOU THINK OF IT? WHY?

I think that this book is good for people who want to read adventures and adventures of ships. It ´s a book which entertains you all the time, since the first to the end.
Lord Jim is short because it has about 70 pages, but it is hard to read because there is too much vocabulary that you don´t understand and you have to find out in a dictionary.
My personal opinion in general is that the book I read was too nice for me.

To sink Harm
