Private Peaceful Review

In this book, Morpurgo captivates emotions so stong that it had me sobbing to the last page. Way better than my high school's history books!

My personal opinion of this book is not good! My review is not positive because it sounds like it was written for a Social Studies teacher, it was NOT an uplifting book and because it sounds like the author didn't know how to end the book and made a drop-off ending.

    The Peaceful Brothers

    I gave this book a four because it was a good book but it wasnâ¿¿t awesome I liked it mostly because it is about war. This book is about two brothers named Tommo who is the youngest and Charlie who is the oldest. The two boys have been friends all of there life and do everything together. The boys also have a mom a brother and Charlie has a girl friend. The boys are told by there land owner that they have to go fight in the war because they were losing other wise they would get there house taken away so they both join and Charlie has some bad times in the war. Thatâ¿¿s all I can tell you so please read it you might enjoy it. I liked the book because it is about war and kind of the wilderness. The book is not part of a series or anything so you could read it when you want. This book reminds me of Band of Brothers or Saving private Ryan a little bit because the whole squad Charlie and Tommo are in work together. I hope you enjoy this book I read.
