I would like to present you three books: Swiss Family Robinson, A journey to the centre of the Earth and Gullivers travels in Lilliput of the series Way Ahead Reader. I have chosen these books because I love stories about adventures, journeys and danger. Heroes of these stories help each other in difficult situations, learn the new world.
Swiss Family Robinson Many years ago, lots of families left Europe to look for new homes. They needed land to farm and wanted a better life for their children. Swiss Family Robinson is about a father, a mother and their four children. They decide to leave their home in Switzerland. The family is sailing to a new country when a terrible storm begins…
A journey to the centre of the Earth The story of a journey to the centre of the Earth is told by Axel, a young German boy. He lives with his uncle in Hamburg, a big city in Germany. Axel is an orphan. He helps his uncle with his work. His uncle, Professor Liddenbrook, is a very learned man: a scholar and a scientist. He studies rocks. One day on Sunday, 24 May 1863 they set out on a dangerous journey.
Gullivers travels in Lilliput Swift's masterpiece appeared in It tells of the adventures of a ship surgeon. As the result of a shipwreck Gulliver finds himself in a country, inhabited by a race of people about six inches high. Everything else in this country is on a correspondent scale. Swift meant this small country with it's shallow interest, corrupted laws and evil customs to symbolize the England of the 18'th century.
The place where Id like to spend my summer holidays is a desert island. Let me explain my choice. Recently I have read Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe in English. This book is about a sailor from York who lived during twenty-eight years on the desert island near the mouth of the river Orinoco where he was thrown with the shipwreck. He found himself on an desert island, with no other land to be seen, except some rocks. Ships complement except Robinson Crusoe perished. His adventures on this island gained my attention. Id like to have personal experience of difficult situations. The best traits of Robinson when he lived on the island were dedicated work, courage, will, inventiveness and thirst for life. Everybody must have these remarkable traits. Where there is a will there is a way. Thats why Id like to spend my summer holidays on the desert island.
