My Favourite Book

Last week, my students from 2º and 4º ESO wrote a short essay on their favourite books. Here are some of their favourites:


Harry Potter is an orphan and lives with his pathetic uncle and unbearable Dudley. Harry is mistreated and misunderstood, he feels and lonely, until one day he receives a letter that will change his life forever and leads him to discover his true identy. Harry learns that he has been accepted as a student at Hogwarts boarding school of Witchcraft and Wizardy. From that moment, the fate of Harry gives a dramatic turnaround. In this school so special, he learns spells tricks and tactics of defense against Dark Arts. He becomes the school champion of Quidditch, a sort of football that is played on broomsticks, and he gets good friend but also some fearsome enemies. But above all, he learns the secrets that allow him to fulfill his destiny. Though not apparent at first glance, Harry is an ordinary boy. He’s a magician!



Harry Potter is a magic boy, his friends are Ron Winsley and Hermione and they help Harry Potter and he helps Ron Winsley and Hermione.

They study in big magic castle and they do tricks of magic.

This is my favourite book because it is very long and the book’s author is J.K. Rowling.

My favorite book is “ALGO RARO ESTÁ PASANDO”.It tells the story of a boy who comes back to a city with their parents.

He lives in an apartment block, with a nice big garden, and a lonely elderly neighbor and apparently, something strange.

Until one day he decided to enter the house of his neighbor in secret, discovered two boxes talking alone.

The old man tells him the secret and that’s when the child begins to get along with him.

Shiva’s Tears
My favorite book is ” Shiva’s Tears” because the history is about a child who goes to the house of his uncle and aunt during his summer holidays because his father is ill.

He gets to know his cousins better and along with one of them he discovers something about his uncle’s family.

It is an incredible summer for him and at the end he has a romance with the above mentioned cousin.

The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas

This book tells the story of Bruno, a German boy of 9 years at the time of Hitler. His family consists of his mother, his father who is a soldier of Hitler and his older sister Gretel. Due to the work of his father, the family must leave their beautiful and spacious house in Berlin and move to Auchwiz in a small house of 2 floors. Bruno refuses because it has a comfortable life in Berlin. As a child, has the ability to be curious and that leads him to explore the surroundings of his new home.
What he finds is a fence, a large fence and behind it, a child. Curious, he walks over and begins to ask. The boy is called Shmuel, is 9 years old and Jewish. From that point, they become friends.

Gradually Shmuel tells Bruno his sad life, how many people lived and how they were moved there. Bruno sees how comfortable and easy his life is.

After a year, Bruno goes to the other side where his best friend is .

The cause was leaving, as he was leaving to go to Berlin again. However, it starts to rain and a lot of people, young children and adults, are put into a big chamber room. Bruno does not know what is happening and sees a huge mess but the kids are together.
His mother and Gretel returnes to Berlin after failing to find Bruno. His father, becomes apathetic and thinks only of his missing son until he realizes what could have happened and will never be forgiven, because as a soldier might say that Hitler killed his own son.

This book is very simple. I read it in 2 days, is easy and nice with a beautiful ending. As you can investigate, Bruno & Shmuel die in the gas chamber. It’s hard to believe that a child of that era has not seen everything that happened, but considering that was rich and his father was under the command of Adolf Hitler everything becomes a little clearer.

The book is delighted and very touched.

My favourite book is “Three Meters Above the Sky” and my favourite movie is “Three Meters Above the Sky”.

The author of this book is Federico Moccio. Federico Moccio is Italian.

The book was published in 1992.

Babi, the protagonist, is a student and the perfect daughter. Hache, the protagonist, is a violent boy.

These two fall in love but this love has many obstacles that are separating them.

This book is not the only one, because there is a second book.

I like this book because it is about the women in war in Colombian.The book was written by a woman.

Women help colombia to get peace but women are discriminated and they are silenced.Many people have sought the information about Colombian women.Women are of great importance in the rise of conflict in the “guerrilla”.

The women feel repressed by the men. It is a History book. This a nice book i would recommend.

My favorite book is : Shiva’s Tears because I think it is an interesting book, of intrigue and fun. It is also the kind of book I like and is appropriate for our age. Although a long book, it seems short to me because although at first it seems boring, then if you continue reading, the book is very interesting because at the end of each chapter the story is intriguing and you want to keep reading. It is the best book I’ve read.
