Title: The Mummy
Author: David Levithan
Publisher: Penguin readers
Characters: Imhotep, O’Conell, Evelyn, Jonathan, Beni, Anck-su-namun.
Setting: In Thebes, Egypt.
Time: 1290, before Christ.
The most important action: “Hello,” said Evelyn. Burns turned around and she screamed. Burns had no eyes. He fell on the ground. Evelyn turned away, but she came face-to-face with Imhotep, Imhotep with Burns’s blue eyes.
The End: Evelyn put her arms around O’Conell and they kissed. Maybe this wasn’t the end. Maybe it was the beginning.
Personal Opinion: It is an entertaining book. Although the reading in general is complicated, I have liked this book because it speaks of an interesting subject. I recommend the students to read this book.
