F) If you had to spend the rest of your life on a desert island with just one book for company, which book would you take? Here what two teenagers said.

Carl – “The Dead Zone” by Stephen King:

“I am a big fan of horror stories and this is simply the one I’ve ever read. It’s got everything – lots of action… amazing ideas… weird characters… great dialogue… Plus, of course, it’s very, very frightening. My mum and dad don’t understand why I like horror stories so much.

Well, it’s hard to explain, but maybe the best way is to compare it with riding on a roller-coaster. It’s a great way to get all the excitement of danger without actually being in danger… you know what I mean?”

Bella – “Hollywood Wives” by Jackie Collins:

“I am not much of a reader, to be honest. This book was great, though… I couldn’t put it down. Basically, the story’s about a group of rich, glamorous people in Hollywood… their lifestyles, relationships, and so on… which is a complete fantasy for most ordinary people, but so what? Only a minority of people want “art” – the rest of us just want to be entertained and that’s why it’s my favourite book”.

G) Ex. 5, p. 85: Report the sentences.
