I personaly would not recommend this book to my friends or the audience.One of my reasons why i dont recommend it is becuase in the beginning it discribes the characters in the book but the auther spent to much time discribing the characters in the whole beginning so it gets boreing in the after a while.The second reason why,is because in some parts of the story the plot goes to slow. It goes slow becuase in some parts there's no action. Instead of that the characters in the story do things that you would do everyday. The third reason i have is that in the book there's not that much excitement. Most of the parts in the book end up with tragedies. For example in one of the parts the dog(Trueno) ends up getting shot by the guards becuase the African-American boy's father was apprehended by the sheriff for stealing a ham to feed his family becuase they were poor. And the boy's dad ends up in a long sentence on a work gang. Those are the reasons why i dont really recommend this book to my friends of to all you viewers.

Yo recomendaria el libro Treno a un amigo/a por que es un libro muy interesante. Hay misterio, alegrias, y tristesas. Lo que a mi me gusta de este libro es que Trueno(el perro)trataba de defender a su amo cuando se lo llevaron a la carcel. El perro Trueno perdio un ojo, una oreja, y caminada con tres patas solamente para rescatar y defender a su amo. Tambien lo que me gusto del libro es que el hijo mayor del hombre siempre daba viajes peligrosos para tratar de buscar a su padre, saber como esta o traerlo a casa. La familia del hombre paso por mucho, por que al final se murio el padre y el perro, Trueno. Me gustaria leer otros libros de William H. Armstrong como, Sounder. El libro, Trueno es un libro muy bonito, maravilloso y con muchos milagros. Es por eso que yo recomendaria este libro a un amigo/a. Les aseguro que les va a gustar mucho el libro como a mi.vm
