“I really liked this book; I started reading it because it was the shortest one, but I liked it from the first page.
In my opinion this book should not be read by children since it talks about themes such as: Communism and what is like to be in a dictatorship, which are not easy to understand for them. Even though I’m not studying history at the moment I found this book really interesting. The plot was awesome and I believe that only the best writers are able to tell a story the way the author did using animals as if they were people. The characters are great, almost every animal has a different personality and that makes the story way more interesting, since you don’t know what they are going to do next.
The ending was perfect, it was a great way of telling that the animals had converted in what they first were afraid of. A great conclusion for even a better book.”
DO YOU THINK THE INTERNET HAS A NEGATIVE EFFECT ON PEOPLE´S LIVES?
Many people today believe that the internet has a negative effect on people’s lives. I disagree with this view for a number of reasons.
First of all, without the Internet people would not be able to communicate with their friends as easily as we do with it. People would also spend much more money on communication.
Another aspect to consider is that thanks to the Internet, you can keep up-to-date with all news and current affairs, and you can consult it whenever you want.
Of course, there are people who think the internet is not beneficial to a person who is addicted to it. I agree with this statement, but I do not think it is bad if you use it moderately.
In conclusion, I believe that although the Internet can be bad for you if you use it carelessly, it is a good way of communicating with your friends, being informed, searching for information…
Last March I was lucky to participate in the National Championship of Athletics, which took place in Sabadell. It was an extraordinary experience, because being able to assist to a hight level competition, to travel to another city and to meet new people who share your same passions, is something indescribable.
Even though I have just said that I was lucky to participate in the competition, I had been working really hard and training a lot during the year, and the satisfaction of achieving the goals that you thought were impossible, is something unique.
I didn’t win. Neither I improved my mark; but I didn’t care about that. I enjoyed so much that I fell in love again with the sport I have been practicing more than twelve years of my life.
