    • I chose to quote it because I think it is true, we don’t study just to pass school , we study to use the things we learn in life.
  • My opinion
    • I liked the book because I like war stories.The style of writing was good and there weren’t many unknown words for me. The only thing I didn’t like about the book was that the action took place in many places, which had weird names, so it was difficult to follow.
