Eine sehr authentische Geschichte, tolle Charaktere und Spannung bis zur allerletzten Seite...
Guides - Die erste Stunde - Robison Well... Guides - Die erste Stunde - Robison Wells
Guides - sie sind Außerirdische. Und sie stürzen mit ihrem Raumschiff auf die Erde, löschen damit eine mittelgroße Stadt in Minnesota aus. Die NASA ist sofort vor Ort, die Menschen auf alles gefasst. Doch die Guides, die das Unglück überlebt haben, entpuppen sich als verträgliche Wesen – vorerst. Viele offene Fragen, ein riesiges Raumschiff, das noch noch erforscht werden will und Wesen, die von Tag zu Tag rätselhafter werden. Mittendrin findet sich Alice wieder, deren Vater für die NASA arbeitet und an Ort und Stelle zu arbeiten hat. Er bringt seine 17-jährige Tochter kurzerhand in einem Elite-Internat nahe der Absturzstelle unter. Alice findet dort schnell Anschluss und ist natürlich wie alle anderen Schüler sehr an den weiteren Entwicklungen interessiert. Und selbstverständlich bleibt es nicht aus, dass sich Alice mit ihren neu gewonnenen Freunden irgendwann mitten im wahrscheinlich größten Abenteuer der Weltgeschichte befindet. Fraglich mit welchem Ausgang...
 
Der neue Roman „Guides – Die erste Stunde“ von Robison Wells ist ein durchgängig spannender und ziemlich gut durchdachter Science-Fiction-Roman. Mir gefielen vor allem die authentisch wirkenden Charaktere und tollen, teils markanten Dialoge. Alice wirkt als Figur sehr sympathisch und führt maßgeblich durch den Roman. Man kommt von Anfang an gut in die Geschichte hinein und der Verlauf ist allgemein sehr gut verständlich. Das Buch ist leichtgängig und sicher nicht nur für die vorgesehene Zielgruppe („Jugendliche / Young Adult“) zu empfehlen, sondern durchaus ein toller Schmöker für alle „älteren“ Fantasy- und Sience-Fiction-Fans. Unerwartete Wendungen halten das Spannungs-Niveau hoch und lassen keinen Rückschluss auf den Ausgang des Romans zu. Ich fand die Inhalte subtil sogar unerwartet gesellschaftskritisch, es rückt jedoch thematisch nie direkt oder zu sehr in den Vordergrund. Der Autor schließt seinen Roman zudem mit einem Epilog, der letztlich noch alle offenen Fragen sinnhaft und stimmig beantwortet und den Roman zu einer absolut "runden Sache" macht! Nervenkitzel bis zur letzten Seite, das mag ich! ;)
 
Mir gefiel die Story, wie auch die Ausgestaltung der Protagonisten und deren Dialoge durchweg sehr gut. Ein spannender Roman zwischen Fantasy und Science-Fiction, absolut lesenswert und deshalb 5 Sterne.

The Time Machine - Greg Bear,H.G. Wells SHREYA KHUBBER MIND TREE The time machine is a social allegory penned down by H.G Wells. the plot of the story is based in the year 802701 A.D. It is amazing to read the imaginative description of future that is given by the author through a character referred to throughout as the Time Traveller. It conveys a moral virtue that we all have forgotten-we are nature and in nature everyone has a part to play. If we don't do it ourself we do not become the stakeholders of the right to complain if some one else overpowers us.

“It’s a touching and rewarding finale to a fantastic series, and “personal challenges” is definitely a very fitting title!” - Rainbow Book Reviews “Loved this book!!!” - Love Bytes Reviews “KC wells continues to blow me away with each book that is written and this one did the same.” - Reader Review
 
 
 
 
K.C. Wells started writing in 2012, although the idea of writing a novel had been in her head since she was a child. But after reading that first gay romance in 2009, she was hooked.
 
She now writes full time, and the line of men in her head, clamouring to tell their story, is getting longer and longer. If the frequent visits by plot bunnies are anything to go by, that’s not about to change anytime soon.

Charlotte's Web - E.B. White,Garth Williams,Rosemary Wells

Charlotte's Web by E.B. White is one of my favorite books to read growing up. I remember our teacher reading this to us and allowing us to watch the movie afterward. The story takes place of a farm where a piglet (and also the runt of the litter) is saved by a farmers daughter, Fern. Fern raises the piglet into a healthy full grown pig, where is is then sold off to the farm down the street. There, Wilbur the pig meet Charlotte the spider and they become instantly acquainted. Wilbur is getting ready to be slaughtered when Charlotte devises a plan to save Wilbur's life. The story has many events where Charlotte saved Wilbur's life by writing messages in her web above his stall. I would rate this book a four out of five stars and is listed as a 680L on the Lexile scale. an activity I would use for this book would be a cause and effect sheet. i would have a list of causes (events in the story) and ask my students to list the effects of each cause.

Charlotte's Web - E.B. White,Garth Williams,Rosemary Wells

This story about a pig’s perseverance is great. With the help of a couple other animals, especially Charlotte the spider, Wilbur’s life is saved. Even though he was the runt, he had people (and animals) that believed in him. Charlotte’s Web is a very fun and entertaining read for any age.

 

 

This book could be used in many ways in the classroom. It could be used to read as a class, literature circles, or independent reading. The book could cover comprehension, characters, setting, plot, etc.
