A me non ha nè entusiasmato ne interessato. Non sono nemmeno riuscita a finirlo per il poco coinvolgimento che questo libro può dare. L'ho trovato davvero noioso.
Speak is another wonderful example of how you should never judge a book by its cover. When I first bought the book, I had never heard of it before and was not anxiously awaiting to begin it like I do other books that I know a little about. When I began reading the book though, I could not put it down and finished it within a day. Laurie Halse Anderson provides a wonderful young adult piece of literature that I would recommend for any person, young or old. The book is broken up into small chapters, which helps the more reluctant readers. Symbolism is seen throughout and would be easy to find with younger readers. Melinda is a wonderful character that is easy to love as soon as you begin reading. Her story is one that will break your heart, make you laugh, and leave you wonder what happened after you turn the last page....Continua
I really enjoyed the book. I liked how she was silent throughout. I could almost connect with Melinda in that way. The way she kept everything to herself until she finally burst. I tend to keep things bottled then when they come out it's like an explosion. The dialogue and Melinda thoughts throughout the book were well written and kept me wanting to read. But what was most inviting to keep reading was the suspense of wanting to know what happened at the party. Another thug I liked was how the art teacher kept wanting her to almost tell her own story through expression. Now I'm no art person but I love the thought of expression through different mediums other than words. Overall great book and one that I would recommend....Continua
In the end I found Speak to be a fairly enjoyable read. The writing style was very different from almost everything else I've read and made the story much more compelling. The way the main character talks was fantastically done, with the witty comments and sarcasm perfectly placed. It made her a very fun character to read about. While the subject matter seems considerably more mature then the target audience, I felt the author approached in is such a way as to make it appropriate and meaningful to a young teenager audience. All in all, I enjoyed read and would recommend it to someone who was looking for a simple, non daunting read....Continua
I really enjoyed reading Speak. I loved the way it was written. It had short chapters that kept me engaged and wanting to read on to find out her story. I kind of had an idea of what had happened, but I wanted to confirm my hypothesis and find out the details. I'm glad that the author decided to write the story as if it was being told in first person by her high school self. It made me really relate to Melinda and her socially awkward habits. This book describes the way one girl deals with a very traumatic experience that takes a huge toll on her social life as well as the way she views herself. I found Melinda to be very funny character in the book who seemed to be a lot older than her age. The end of the book had a happy ending, which I personally liked. I'm glad that she finally got some justice for what happened to her. Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to any young girl, because it really illustrates how tough the transition from child to adult can be....Continua
