I Really Enjoyed It!
on 25 January 2009
Ok, so it may not be for everyone, but I loved it and couldn't put it down. We had to read it for English, and many people were groaning and grumbling about what a boring book it was, even though they hadn't even read the first page.
Gatty, a 'on the spur of the moment' girl has to leave her home of Caldicot, and travel to Wales where she and 8 other people go on a pilgrim to Jerusulem. That might not sound exciting but it is a really gripping and quite a tear jerking book that is descriptive, yet has a lot of adventure. It can be hard to understand what some of the words mean but after I had finished the book I came across a glossary of words at the back, explaining what all the words meant. It is a truly wonderful medieval tale, a tale that you won't want to finish.
