My teacher chose “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. The book is about romance and fantasy. Lysander was a young man and he was in love with Hermia, a beautiful girl, but the problem was that Demetrius was in love with Hermia too, but Hermia loved Lysander. Helena, Hermia’s friend, loved Demetrius. Lysander and Hermia  had a plan – escape to the wood but Helena revealed the secret to Demetrius. In the wood, there were fairies. One of the fairies is called Puck, who prepared flower juice and everything changed …

My favourite part is the first part, because the problems with love were very good. I don’t like the part developed in the wood because it has too much fantasy. Lysander, Hermia, Demetrius and Helena are believable characters but the fairies aren’t.

I recommend it.
