    Simply a gorgeous book

    The chapters are so simple and profound. Robert Cormier really adapted his style into poetry in this book. It is one of my most beloved novels ever.

    The book Frenchtown Summer by Robert Cormier wasn┬┐t anything l

    The book Frenchtown Summer by Robert Cormier wasn’t anything like I had ever read before. The author brought so much life to the setting and characters of the book. I could easily picture the scenes that the author imagined. But what really made this book so interesting was the way Robert changed the mood. At times it was enchanting what the author expressed, but then in the next line was something heartbreaking. He really kept you turning the page to see what else he had to offer in the story put in lyrical verse.

    The series of scenes that the author portrayed were so very different, but very important. They conveyed the occasions in twelve year old Eugene’s childhood and it didn’t seem as if they were connected together and if so, it was rare. It seemed as if the author was simply listing important people and occasions in the young boys life, but once I read the last page I saw the connection.

    The novel by Comier revealed the excitement and sensitive feelings of a young boy. The love of planes and trains, the fear of death, the coming of crushes, and the admiration of a father are things that I’m sure most boys could relate to. Read about Eugene’s overcoming of loneliness and the discovery of his fathers true feelings toward his son in Frenchtown Summer.
