and whether it is a part of a series or a standalone book. Who is your favourite character, and

why? Who is your least favourite character and why? Write about your favourite part of the

book, could you provide a quotation or two? Does the book has a satisfying ending, if not, why

not and what would you change? (No yes/ no answers please). Give the book a score out of 10.
