PG-13 Science Fiction Action
The newest Star Trek movie is out, and currently has some great reviews. Rated at 87% on Rotten Tomatoes, the movie is promising. Without revealing too much, the opening scene is in the middle of an important mission which starts off the action-packed movie. Kirk makes an important choice, completing the mission or saving the life of a friend, which results in him losing his command on the Starship Enterprise However, the audience is well aware of Kirk and his tactics and attitude, and they know that he will regain command. Full with twists and turns as well as some comedic parts in a most believable plot, the movie is highly entertaining and is a must-see for any Star Trek fan. Beware, there are lots of emotional parts and the relationship between Spock and Kirk is heavily defined.
This book is written by Elie Wiesel, a Jewish man who survived the Holocaust, and decided to tell his story to the world. This is set in the time of World War II, so to understand this book completely, I suggest having some knowledge of what countries were involved and why it was happening. It all started when Eliezer was 13 years old, in the little town of Sighet, Hungary, 1941. The first time that we, as readers, see the first acts of the Holocaust is when Moishe the Beadle escapes from a mass grave and tells everybody who will listen what happened. The story escalates from this point on, and it's only when they arrive at the concentration camp, and for some even later on, that the Jewish people realized what was really happening.
We are currently reading this book in my English class to cover the themes of prejudice and racism. This book should not be read by those who can not take the subject of the Holocaust and of course, young children. Overall though, I give this book a 8/10 stars
