    London Calling is unique.

    London Calling is unlike any other historical fiction book I have ever read. It is an unusual mix of strong spiritual ideas and the science fiction of time travel. When an antique radio takes Martin Conway to the Battle of Britain, he is like a ghost because only a boy named Jimmy can see or hear him. Now Martin must decide whether he is crazy or sent by God to help a man who survived the Blitz.

    A very good read

    I enjoyed reading the human emotion is this book. And the fantasy weaved in with the historical fiction was satisfying. I recommend London Calling to all.

    London Calling

    London Calling Alfred A. Knopf, 2006, 289 pages, $16.95 By: Edward Bloor 0-375-83635-7 Martin lives with his mom, and older sister Margaret. He doesn¿t want to go to his school any more but his mom wants him to. After his grandma passes away he gets an old radio that his she wanted him to have. It seems like a normal radio but sometimes when Martin goes to bed he sees strange things. Martin doesn¿t know if these things are all a dream or if they are actually happening. I really liked this book because it has adventure and every thing seems to all connect eventually. Also it was so good I couldn¿t put it down. If you like adventure books and mysterious things you would like this book. Another thing is that if you enjoyed London Calling you might want to read another book by Edward Bloor such as Tangerine. -Maggie

    This book, I think, was beautfully writen and very easy to read. I have recently found it hard to find a really good book that I do not want to put down but this one deffinately satisfied me. Just to tell you a little about the book, it is about a boy who has dreams that are so real, about World War II, and the thing is he has never heard stories about what is going in in his dreams but everything that is going on in his dreams appears to be exactly true. Well I won't say anymore but that this is a really good book and that I wound recamend this to WWII lovers such as myself
