In this story, Rory and his granda live together blissfully, even though sometimes there are troubles because of granda's worsening Alzheimer condition. Granda is a quirky, loveable character who is quite funny at times, while Rory is ...more
The characters Granda and Rory reminds me of a close knit family I once read about (somehow I couldn't remember) and I'm impressed by the way Rory sacrificed and thought of just to 'elope' (Hahaha, just kidding) with granda (I laughed when he don't remember his name)...Overall, a goodread, a happy ending, and most importantly interesting! But truth to be told, I was so ...more
but i read it anyway because it was for school and i need to do a report on it so yeah.
and guess what? it was unexpectedly good, i couldnt put it down, such a page turner and i finished it in like 6 hours or so.
lesson learned ; dont underestimate school books. they can be fun to read, like this o ...more
I finished this book in like one day aha. I thought my teacher wanted to revise about it in class and yes, I didn't even read it yet. Not even a page. So I picked it up after my teacher told the class to read it because she wanted to discuss about it the next day.
It's a good story I guess with a very good moral values.
And oh, Granda is funny!
So what did I did? Buy it off from a book store? Nope! I bought it from a senior who graduated! xD
Honestly, I hadn't really thought it'd be as interesting as I thought... Yea, my expectations then were real low...
But, for anyone who isn't 'forced' to read this book, ...more
The book was okay I suppose. Granda was amusing but God, I hate MacPhail for sort of trolling with us about Granda's death.
I was expecting that Rory would help that crazy girl with whatever her problem was during the time he spent in that children's home (forgive my bad memory) but he did not. The girl was sort of just there, y'know? But I guess she acted as a motivation for Rory to run away with Granda. Still disappointed that it didn't ...more
The problem that I had with the book was how bloody ignorant both Rory and Granda were. It was obvious from the start that there was something wrong with Granda, yet what do they both do? THEY RUN AWAY. I know, I know, orphanages and old folks' home can be pretty scary, but just THINK for a second as to WHY all of this happened in the first place.
Dude, if your Granda is incapab ...more
The ending was also not satisfying for me, we only get to see Jeff for like two seconds! 2 stars, just because I know it's really difficult to write a book and because I liked some of the side characters t ...more
The book is about a grandfather and a grandson. The grandfather, Granda, is very old and the grandson, Rory, is the only one he can count on. So, something happens and eventually, Granda and Rory is going to be separated from each other. They opposed the idea. So, Rory and Granda escape together and they met different kinds of people that they wasn't aware existed in this world.
