I just read a book called Emergency Murder. The book was very mysterious and I do recommend it.
I am going to talk about a character from the book who is a researcher at the Marquette University. Her name is Virginia Gaust. I do not like her because she poisoned a woman which the whole book is talking about who killed the woman. And poisoning is a type of murder which is not good. She is also not honest because if she were the book will just probably be a paragraph long.

I have just read A Series of Misfortunate Events:The Wide Window by Lemony Snicket. I am going to talk about Violet Baudelaire, one of the characters in this book.
Violet Baudelaire is the oldest of the Baudelaire children. She is very smart and likes to tie a ribbon in her hair to keep it out of her eyes whenever she thinks of inventions. As the oldest child, she takes responsibility of her siblings' safety. She loves them very much and tries her best to protect them. She is my favourite character in the series so far.

Wienda Nurhanie | 17 comments The book i read is called Paper Towns by John Green. The character that i'm gonna talk about is Margo Roth Spiegelman. She is also my favourite character in this book.
She likes mysteries and adventures and is considered the cool girl. Margo also likes to runaway from home and when she runs away, she likes to leave clues for people to find them.

Ancilla.M | 15 comments I read this book called Dolphin Music. I think it is very interesting. But the book is too short, I don't know much about the characters. So I'm going to talk about the main character, a music critic named Saul Grant.
He lives in a virtual world, he meet, travel and do everything virtually. He loves dolphin music. But one day someone told him that his world is not as happy as it seem to be. The dolphins are also tortured to make them sing. So he leave his career and reputation just to join the group who are against the stupid virtual world controller. He is very selfless and also brave. I can't say he is my favourite character, I will rate him 7.5/10

Michellechartanto | 19 comments The title of my book is better late then never, and the character that i chose is zaphira. She is 16 years old and tall as she is one of the basket players. Zaphira rarely smiles but is kind hearted.
There was one time her bestfriend anika was hit by a sharp piece of metal at the shoulder and zaphira helped her by pressing a wet sock into the wound to help it stop bleeding. Which proves that she cares about her bestfriend

I read a book with tittle Windows Of The Mind, this book is not interesting because there is one man who call Daniel Appleby he like to lying. One day he got accident and the accident cause he lost his sense of smelling and tasting but at that time he still have contract with Colbert to attend wine tasting show on television. But he dare not admit his handicap to his boss. When the show is started colbert ask him to pronounce the taste of the wine, but he wrong pronounce it and he embarrasing himself. So the conclusion is i don’t like him and we also are not suppose to lying we must to be honest

Paper Towns by John Green
I have read 'paper towns' and my favourite character was Margo Roth Spiegelman. She loved mysteries so much that she became one. She was also adventurous since she love to explore new things. She was also brave and courageous as she breaks into SeaWorld and Universal Studios.

R. Eagan | 21 comments I read a book called American Crime Stories. It is divided into 7 short stories. I chose the chapter Death in Christmas Eve. The character I chose was called Charlie. He is currently a paranoid and depressed person in mourning for his wife. Charlie is an elegant person but he has this tendency to blame his suspected sister for murdering his wife. Even if his sister didn't do it, Charlie still wanted her to die, possibly to just fill the role of murderer in his eyes.
