The author I chose is Patrick Rothfuss, I chose him because I have always enjoyed fantasy books, mainly from reading all of the Percy Jackson series as a kid. Patrick’s primary form of work is novels, his most famous novel is The Name of the Wind. This impacted my consideration, because I hate poetry so that was out right off the bat, and I actually wanted to read a full story and I love fantasy books so I chose Rothfuss.

The first most interesting book he wrote is The Name of the Wind, it’s interesting because it is his first big novel he wrote and it was very famous. The next book is The Wise Mans Fear, which is the sequel to The Name of the Wind, and still follows the same story of the first book and I like fantasy so that’s why its interesting. The last book is called The Slow Regard of Silent Things this one is interesting because it is the third installment of his series, and it is also fantasy and really cool.

A cool fact about Patrick Rothfuss is that he went to college for almost a decade, and used to write really bad books to show how not to write books.

So far I think that The Adventures of Huckleberry Fin is not the worst book I’ve ever read, but it also isn’t the best book I have ever read. I enjoy reading it because it has an intriguing story line, but I also don’t like reading it because I’m not a big fan of reading. it is a lot better than I expected though because when we read books in school usually they are boring and no one ever wants to read them because our society these days has something against books, but it is a good book and a lot better than initially thought it would be. I think it is interesting how it is kind of a sequel to Tom Sawyer, where it has tom in it but he isn’t the main character and his friend actually is, so it is kinda like a spin off of it, but a lot more inappropriate. I like the story so far it keeps me intrigued, but I just really am not a big fan of reading so that is my least favorite part, but i’m glad were doing it in parts because I would never just sit down and read this book by myself, I need to do it in sections or I would get bored.

I really enjoyed the jumping frog story, because I like how Wheeler knew right away that the narrator thought of him as a dumb person, so wheeler decided to prove him wrong by just wasting all of the narrators time which I think is pretty funny. I really liked the way we handled AR in the 3rd quarter because I actually read my book, and I liked how we only had to read one book. I also love making movies or small trailers because it’s fun. So far it seems kinda slow, like it’ll probably get better but as of now it’s not the best book I’ve ever read. It’s probably gonna end up being a book where Huck has to find himself and overcome a challenge.
