This story's stage is about 500 years later from now. In that world, people who are 12 years old must do their Year of Sharing. And this story's main character Richard do it, too.At first, I think the Year of Sharing is inretesting thing, but at last, I think my thought was probably wrong. His new family and their closeness are very nice. So the last is very horrible, but this story mede me excited very much.

In a future world, there are no places for human - there are places just for animals. In a village, twelve-year-old children must do their Year of Sharing, and Richard must do that, too. He must live alone in the forest with the wild animals. He must learn how it is to live, eat, fight and die...It is a very shocking story. Today in the world, many people insist that we have to protect the environment, especially for the animals. But we can know how the world is going to be like by reading this book. Of course it is just a story, but I came to think that we have to think more about our world.

This is a story of a boy and of a future.In order to escape from a wild animal, humans surrounded their villages with a wall, and were living. And the boy became to live in the world of animals for one year as an animal. It is a little difficult story to understand.I thought whether there would be such future. I would like to carry out with future which can live with animals.

Richard lives in a future world where there are no cars or factories.He doesn't like his life,village and family. He becomes twelve years old and has to do his Year of Sharing.He begins to live with deer.As a result of his life with deer, Richard learnt a love for family.He was a lonly boy but became a kind boy. I was glad that he knew a love and I also thoght about a human life and love. But I wanted Richard to live with his real family in his village after Year of Sharing. Because he learnt about a love,he would do better than before. But the natural world is hard. I should keep in mind the fact.

This is a fiction in the earth of the future. Then, in order to keep nature with an animal, human was living in the small village surrounded in the ditch. And if everyone will be 12 years old, they must come out from a ditch and must live with an animal. Half children never live and return. It was very shocking. I thought that I could make a living at first in such the world. However, the word which the hero's mother said at the end was very fearful, and I felt fear. I cannot deny this world completely.

This story is about a boy. His name is Richard. He is 12 years old and he must live alone in the forest with wild animals.He learns a lot of things.I think this story is a little boring. I cannot understand the contents. It is difficult for me to read. In the same situation, I think I cannot alive. We should learn it's very hard to live in the nature.
