|موضوع: Bridge to Terabithia - Book review الخميس يونيو 28, 2012 5:37 pm|| |
The story is about two 5th grade friends ; Jess and Leslie . They have created their own imaginary kingdom "Terabithia"
I've enjoyed watching "Bridge To Terabithia" movie before. And I really liked it! So I've decided to read the book.
I loved Leslie's character. She's a creative sweet girl , a wonderful friend and she spreads positivity wherever she goes. But I hate that tragic ending . Loosing one's best friend is so painful.The movie poster: The author " Katherine Paterson"

I loved these lines !
"It’s the principle of the thing, Jess . That’s what you’ve got to understand. You have to stop people like that. Otherwise they turn into tyrants and dictators."
"It made Jess ache inside to watch his dad grab the little ones to his shoulder, or lean down and hug them. It seemed to him that he had been thought too big for that since the day he was born."
“It was Leslie who had taken him from the cow pasture into Terabithia and turned him into a king. He had thought that was it. Wasn't king the best you could be? Now it occurred to him that perhaps Terabithia was like a castle where you came to be knighted. After you stayed for a while and grew strong you had to move on. For hadn't Leslie, even in Terabithia, tried to push back the walls of his mind and make him see beyond to the shining world—huge and terrible and beautiful and very fragile? (Handle with care—everything—even the predators.)
Now it was time for him to move out. She wasn't there, so he must go for both of them. It was up to him to pay back to the world in beauty and caring what Leslie had loaned him in vision and strength.
As for the terrors ahead—for he did not fool himself that they were all behind him—well, you just have to stand up to your fear and not let it squeeze you white. Right, Leslie?
"She had made him leave his old self behind and come into her world, and then before he was really at home in it but too late to go back , she had left him stranded there like an astronaut wandering about on the moon. Alone. "
