Star Wars the old republic: Revan book Star Wars the old republic: Revan

Drew Karpyshyn
FIC KARPYSH

4 stars.

Describe the book: The story is mostly about how Revan is recovering from memory loss from the Mandalorian wars, and he finds out more about his past as he goes on. He discovers an enemy more powerful than anything he has faced before, and with most of his past lost, he is forced to team up with someone who knows more about Revan's enemy; a Sith named Lord Scourge.

What did you think: This is easily one of the best Star Wars books I have ever read. I like the whole storyline, and one of my favorite parts was when Revan teamed up with one of his enemies, Lord Scourge, along with his mercenary friend Canderous, and a Jedi friend named Meetra. It's mostly an intense, action-packed book, but the ending is really sad.

Who would you recommend it to: Any hardcore Star Wars fans from 15 to 25 yrs old.

John Green
TEEN GREEN

4 stars.

Describe the book: Hazel, a 16 year old girl with terminal cancer meets a boy named Augustus at a cancer support group and despite both their cancers (although Augustus beats his cancer) and going through many difficulties, they fall in love.

What did you think: I absolutely loved this book! It was very emotional and it just made me happy and sad at the same time. My favorite part of the book was when they were having dinner in Amsterdam because they both got to meet their favorite author even though he was a jerk.

Who would you recommend it to: All girls. Maybe the emotional guys too.

The Time Machine book The Time Machine

H.G. Wells
FIC WELLS

3 stars.

Describe the book: The Time Traveller, a Victorian scientist, builds a Time Machine based on his theory that time is the 4th dimension. Using his invention, he is rocketed to the year 802,701 AD. He discovers humanity has evolved into two completely different races. We read as our hero flees from the future, realizing our deepest hopes alongside our darkest fears.

What did you think: H.G. Wells practically invented science fiction with this book. He coined the term 'Time Machine' and was the first to introduce the concept of moving through time, rather than physical space. This book was a pioneer in the genre and will spark imagination for generations to come.

Perhaps no place in any community is so totally democratic as the town library.
The only entrance requirement is interest.
