It was SO good! I loved every minute of reading it! I must say I was really surprised with Arya and Eragon, she really surprised me with how she acted. Eragon was funny, though, how he pined after her all the time /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":lol:" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" /> ...

I like fantasy. It has always amazed me what some authors can invent with just their minds. The stranger it is - the better. That, and there are some really brilliant fantasy authors out there.

This series is one of my all time favourites - it's beautifully written with all these great characters that just pull you in. Be sure to check Lyra's Oxford too. It's like a sequel of the actual trilogy which talks about Lyra's world. I loved it! Oh, okay. I've seen this book in our school library,...

Uh guys? Daniel Handler is the real name of Lemony Snicket. Lemony Snicket is a "pen name" ... like a nickname.

I have read The Da Vinci Code and Digital Fortress, both of which were really good. I want to read his other novels, too, when I get around to it.

The only Shakespeare that I have read is Macbeth (in school). Oh, but we studied the film version of Much Ado About Noting a few years ago, which was really cool. Anyway, Macbeth was alright, but a bit dark for my liking at sometimes. I find Shakespeare hard to understand sometimes though. But I wou...

Wow - I didn't know there was 13 either!! Geez, I've only just read the third book... Guess I've got lots of reading to do! I love the way Lemony Snicket writes, though, and all the random stuff he says. Like: "If you are allergic to a thing, it is best not to put that thing in your mouth, particula...

Most old movies are really good, but I don't get to see a lot (and I would love to see more). One of my favourite movies of all time would have to be Grease - it's simply a classic in my opinion!

Haha - I just finished reading Lord of the Flies (for the first time) earlier this morning! It was pretty good overall, although it was a bit hard to read sometimes when the author was describing something in great detail (or maybe it was the fact that I was reading late at night). I thought it was ...

I would recommend the band All American Rejects to anyone. I would describe them as a punk band, quite similar to Simple Plan and Greenday. They have released two great songs so far (that I know of), called Swing, Swing and Dirty Little Secret I would also recommend Lifehouse or Wheatus to people. I...

Ooh - I just thought of another author to add! Any books by David Clement-Davies are really good. He writes from the perspective of animals, but he adds in what I guess you would call supernatural twists to his stories. He has this really beautiful way of writing and it is the kind of book you can n...

I quite like Eragon - it has a few unique ideas in it and can be really captivating at times. One of my friends got me started reading it and now we are both anxiously wating for the next installment. I can't wait!

For a rating, I would probably give it an 8/10.

I picked Aladdin - because I love the music in it (especially A Whole New World of course /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> ) But The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast and other classics like that are always great to watch, too.

I'd recommend the Tomorrow, When the War Began series by John Marsden to anyone who wants to read something a bit different. They are about a group of teenagers whose country is invaded while they are camping in the bush. The books get a little bit gruesome at some points, so be warned, but they dea...

I took keyboard/piano lessons for five years (stopping at the end of last year). I still play occassionally, but not as often as I used to.
