Boot Camp
By Todd Strasser
pg. finished

The book is told in fist person point of view. I think it makes the book more thrilling because it says what he thinks about everyone and how he feels. Compared to if it was in third person you wouldn't be able to no as much. So it would make the book pretty boring and I wouldn't want to read it.


  1. I have noticed this book is commonly read, so it will be a good ideea I'm assuming for later in the year. If it was told in third person, to where you could hear how other think of him, would that still be interesting? In first person it would be nice to really get an image on how he think boot camp is, if thats what the book is about. Hopefully you enjoyed it.

  2. I alos was told that this book was a good one. I might read it later. I agree that if the book was told in third person it would lose some of the exciting things in it. I like first person point of view way better.

  3. I think that it is a good thing that it's told in first person. That way you can get a good vision of exactly what he is seeing and feeling. I think it would be good to see other characters thoughts about what is going on though too. Then you could have many opinions, but not as much personal information.
