The Westing Game by Ellen Raskinthis is what i am going to do: i am going to take a red panda, and i am going to learn genetics and i dunno - neuroscience. and welding. and i am going to take a little bit of my brain, and a little bit of everyones brain here on goodreads.com (youll be asleep, you wont feel a thing) and then i am going to moosh it all together, and put it in the brain of the red panda. and then i will have the perfect book-recommending resource. because if i had had one of these when i was little, then it would have told me, you love peggy parrish and her wordplay-based mysteries and you have seen the movie clue enough times that you can recite the whole thing (still can). heres a book you will like. i would have to fine tune it so it works better than the one they have on amazon.com or netflix.com (because, no, i would not like to see the aviator, thank you). i would have loved this book like crazy as a kid. as a grown up, i liked it very much, but thought the characters could have used a little fleshing out to make them more defined. the child-me would not have cared. now i have to go write 250 academic words about it. so much less fun than mad scientisting.
come to my blog!
Book Review of "The Westing Game" by Ria
A Look Back at The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin
With the money and the hints, they are to find out who killed Westing and why. Death is senseless yet it makes way for the living. Life, too, is senseless unless you know who you are, what you want, and which way the wind blows…God bless you all and remember this: Buy Westing Paper Products! For this reason, and for thematic reasons too, the book feels as though it could be for an audience of just about any age. But this is not a generic thriller. What sets this book apart and what keeps it popular is its treatment of the characters, and its apparent commitment to the development of a diverse cast. For example, James Hoo and his Chinese immigrant wife run a Chinese restaurant.
It seems smarter and funnier, and altogether more perfect every time I reread it. Simply stated the best book ever. It stands the test of time, and I give it to kids every year.
