Pictures of Hollis Woods.

Sunday, February 21, 2010

I've bought a book, I mean a masterpiece of Patricia Reilly Giff, or in other word, a novel entitled Pictures of Hollis Woods when I was in KISAS in 2009, last year. Urm, actually, when I observing the Scholastic's catalogue, I've no any intention to buy this book, as the front cover was not attractive at all, it just made the buyers have the first expression, the bad one, toward the content, by the cover. So do I, at first I thought this book wasn't interesting at all, maybe the boring one. Despite I had a thought like that, yet I managed to buy a copy. Just to make the overall total of purchase of RM30. Haha. I forgot how much it cost.

Anyway, I'll write some overview about this book here. Pictures of Hollis Woods was a story of a 12-year-old girl named Hollis Woods, who was an orphan that had been left by her parents with only a note, said 'Just call her Hollis Woods'. She owned an outstanding talent; drawing. She really demanding a family. Then, at the age of 12, she's being adopted by a family, Regan family. Being a part of the family made her felt the pleasure of having her own family. But she's always worried about the relationship between the Old Man, his adopted father and his son, Steven, her adopted brother which seems cold. She thought that her present was creating the mess. Then she made an escape back to the orphanage house, then she's being adopted by an old women named Josie. She's really liked the Regan family, making her wondering, were they accept her back to their family if she come to them back?

My comment for this novel, this novel wasn't so great. No any outstanding plot or surprising event or unexpected one. Just monotone, without climax (or there was one, just me can't detect it's presence). I'm not sure this kind of novel suitable for what kind of person, 'cause this novel was just dull. Just read the novel if you want to know more (but I bet nobody desperate to have even a glimpse at the novel after I'm saying this).

Anybody want to have a read on it? Contact me. InsyaAllah I'll lend it to you.

P/S: The cover looked boring, isn't it?
