    Actionpacked book that is totaly awsome!

    The book Dogfight, by Craig Simpson, starts off when Finn’s father leaves for England to join the RAF to fight against the Luftwaffe and he gives Finn his flying jacket. A year later, Norway’s invaded and Finn’s family receive news that Finns father had been shot down. Finn throws a rotten egg at a German colonel. Then while Finn runs away, he is shot at. Finn is frightened and pedals harder on Ned’s bike because Ned stole his flying jacket. The next day, he gets news that Ned had been thrown into jail but had been released. Finn and Loki go on a mission to help out Heimar & Freya, with the arrival of a British agent. The British agent crashes. Finn and Loki then leave with a dog. When they return, they go to see the priest to tell him the information because he was in the resistance. Finn is thrown into jail. He is then interrogated by a Norwegian Nazi and sees an execution and is released. He gets his Flying jacket back. Finn and Loki save the printers. Finn and Loki then go on a mission to get British agent picked up because his job was done. When on his way over, he finds a dead man and Heimar captured by the Nazis. He then finds Freya with British agent but get ambushed and the British agent dies, Freya escapes on the plane, Finn is wounded but he and Loki manage to escape. After they get across the lake, they ram their boat into a Nazi patrol boat and it exploded. They then go the double agent Dieter and get the priest killed but Loki kills Dieter. Then they decide to escape by stealing a Nazi plane. On their way, they are intercepted by a Nazi patrol but Oslo saves them. They steal it and shoot down one other Nazi aircraft. When they land safely in Britain, they join a school for secret agents and become well known. I liked this book because it is full of bravery, excitement, friendship, patriotism and action. I disliked this book because at some points, it was pretty graphic. Some major themes that war is bad and evil and is harmful to the people who halve to suffer for it, as seen when Finn eggs the coronal and the baker is shot. Also, revenge being a risk is also a theme. This is shown when Finn eggs the coronal to get revenge on Ned. Those are the major themes. People should read this book if they enjoy historical fiction, action, danger and excitement. If you don’t like some violence, you should not read this book. There are many other brilliant books out there, such as any star wars books, Biggles: in France, Sherlock Homes, anything by C. S. Lewis, Watership Down and many more. To really enjoy the books of the world, don’t only read for school, but also for enjoyment. I give this book an overall rating of a 4/5.
