Proglogue/ Blood in the water
Poaching ! I mean really ! ooohh lets go poaching and catch a fish in the lake oohh hope I dont get caught. What a let down for an introduction, after I'd built it up so much as an action adventure I felt a right idiot. Redeemed in the nick of time the last 3 pages had his mouth opened.

Chaptor 1/ The new Boy
Well not much excitement here, the new boy arriving at Eton as a boarder, hints at possible bullying in the future. yawn.

Chaptor 2 / Hellebore
Meets the bullies Dad when running an errand. Hmmm hes good at boxing and running. Still not getting this book. Hard to keep my son interested.

Chaptor 3
Theres going to be a triatholon. Running/ swimming/ shooting. Eels make another appearance with the caretaker showing the boys how to skin an eel.

Chaptor 4
James begins training for swimming and has a run-in with bully Hellbore. James seems such a push over I hope this changes.
