    BEGGINING I have decided to read “MISERY GUTS” because the book has been recommended to me as funny, exciting and short. Being one of the first chapter books I am going to read, I hope it has the right persuasive language, a hilarious story and it isn’t too long for me. I hope this book captures me, I can’t promise it will, it actually probably won’t but I hope the book gives me a bit of a laugh and persuades me too keep reading it. I think this book is going to decide 1. Whether I hate all books BEGGINING I have decided to read “MISERY GUTS” because the book has been recommended to me as funny, exciting and short. Being one of the first chapter books I am going to read, I hope it has the right persuasive language, a hilarious story and it isn’t too long for me. I hope this book captures me, I can’t promise it will, it actually probably won’t but I hope the book gives me a bit of a laugh and persuades me too keep reading it. I think this book is going to decide 1. Whether I hate all books or 2. If I only hate most books, personally I hope it is the second one. MIDDLE So far this book has let me down in an abundant of different ways. Number 1, the book is not one bit funny at all. 2, the book doesn’t have any twists or extravagant moments in it besides when the shop burns down and even that is highly irrelevant to the story. I think this book repeats itself over and over, because for Keith’s Dads birthday, Keith painted his fish and chip shop to try and cheer him up from his misery and that’s all the book talks about till nearly the end of the book. In the book MISERY GUTS the author should put a sudden FUNNY twist for example Keith finds a million dollars on the floor but his dad takes it and spends it on monkeys. Now if there was a book like that I would definitely read it. In MISERY GUTS the author hasn’t captured me he has actually done the opposite. I really hope the end of the book isn’t like this “repeated” but maybe “AT LEAST” changes a little bit. Until I read on in this book I just want to clarify that so far this book has been a disappointment and if it doesn’t pick itself up I don’t think this book should ever been seen by anyone ever again. There is no way I will read the next book in the series. END After reading the book “MISSERY GUTS” I can only wonder how this book got published because it is the most boring story I have ever seen. The book doesn’t even have an ending. In the review I wrote in the middle of the story, I mentioned that the book repeats itself over and over, well after reading some book reviews about the second book in the series it is exactly the same as the first one, the parents are depressed and Keith tries to cheer them up. It is actually really frustrating me that I got recommended this book in the first place, reason being, all of that time I spent horrifically reading that book, I could have learnt or done something else that actually taught me something and that I actually enjoyed. I think “MISSERY GUTS” is the worst book I have ever read just behind where’s Wally. Next time I go to pick a book I am going to think twice about whether 1, I am going to like the book and 2, whether I can actually be fooled into reading another stupid book to waste my time and finally what type of book I read and it definitely will not be the next book in the series.
