    Kindle Susan Cooper ¼ ¼ Dawn of Fear ePUB ç Dawn of PDF/EPUB ² dawn ebok, fear epub, Dawn of free, Dawn of Fear PDFNot as sensational as 'The Machine Gunners' less ostentatiously sophisticated than 'Fireweed' but of all the blitz stories I read as a child this is the one that stuck with me most It doesn't seem to have made it onto the popular lists of great WW2 children's literature and unable to remember the title I hadn't tracked it down until stumbling across it in a library a couple of weeks ago What an experience to find on every page images and events that have remained with me with incredible clarity after 28 years though it's hardly surprising given the simple effectiveness of the writingPerhaps it hasn't sustained a wider readership because unlike other children's books with a WW2 setting it doesn't have much of a 'hook' there's no extraordinary inciting event no uniue selling point it simply portrays the lives of three boys living through the blitz Even that isn't sensation

    Kindle Susan Cooper ¼ ¼ Dawn of Fear ePUB ç Dawn of PDF/EPUB ² dawn ebok, fear epub, Dawn of free, Dawn of Fear PDFWhile the peculiar exploits of British children during WWII were commonplace I'm not sure there is room for that many great juvenile historical fiction books describing these times I recently read one of the acknolwedged best The Machine Gunners and this earlier book pales in comparison It's not bad just not great and once you've read one of these so much is redundant

    Kindle Susan Cooper ¼ ¼ Dawn of Fear ePUB ç Dawn of PDF/EPUB ² dawn ebok, fear epub, Dawn of free, Dawn of Fear PDFAspects of this were interesting about air raid shelters for example and Susan Cooper writes very rounded and emotionally believable boys Whether I entirely want to believe them is another matter The book's main view of masculinities was very problematic for all that it was at least plural and relied pretty heavily on both heterosexuality and misogyny The portrayal of g

    Kindle Susan Cooper ¼ ¼ Dawn of Fear ePUB ç Dawn of PDF/EPUB ² dawn ebok, fear epub, Dawn of free, Dawn of Fear PDFI found this book to be very unappealing First it was dry and didn't have anything that hooked me right away Second there was some awfulness that just seemed to grow and grow without much resolution And yes I do understand that most WWII books touch on terrible things there always seems to be some light thrown in as well at least for kids' books but this was just lacking Pure darkness with no redemption or explanation for its place in the story I would not recommend

    Kindle Susan Cooper ¼ ¼ Dawn of Fear ePUB ç Dawn of PDF/EPUB ² dawn ebok, fear epub, Dawn of free, Dawn of Fear PDFSusan Cooper always writes well This is one of her deceptively simple books On the face of it the story is an uncomplicated children's story but it is as the title suggests about learning what fear really is For Derek and his friends Peter and Geoffrey think the war is as Derek's father said of their attitude 'Just a great game' They continue to build their den go to school fight off the neighbouring street's children who destroy their den and wonder for there are undercurrents they sense the grown ups know about Even the nightly air raids are adventures not seriously scary Over the nine busy days of the story Derek changes from the boy who thinks war is exciting who collects shrapnel and enjoys watching the dog fights to one who understands war as destruction and death Susan Cooper's skills turn this difficult subject into one any child can understand It is also a book which would give a youngster an understanding of what it was like during WWII seen through t

    Kindle Susan Cooper ¼ ¼ Dawn of Fear ePUB ç Dawn of PDF/EPUB ² dawn ebok, fear epub, Dawn of free, Dawn of Fear PDFDNF did not finishI started reading this AGES ago I was pretty young at the time but I couldn't get into it and it was dark and depressing It's a fictionalized semi autobiography of the author's experiences as a child during the bombing of London in WWII so obviously horrific the so because it's largely true For those interested in such things they might find it interesting But it doesn't seem like it's for children to me anyway and I don't know it just wasn't for me I guess I gl

    Kindle Susan Cooper ¼ ¼ Dawn of Fear ePUB ç Dawn of PDF/EPUB ² dawn ebok, fear epub, Dawn of free, Dawn of Fear PDFYoung Derek is trying to grow up during the bombing of London He learns lessons about sacrifice and fear in a world we can't control Overall I was disapointed in this book I never fell in love with the characters because they just never revealed themselves to me The author tries to throw in some deepness at the end of the book but it's too little too late An extra thing the artwork on the cover does not happen in the book which I found interesting since I found the book to be a let down when it came to substance

    Kindle Susan Cooper ¼ ¼ Dawn of Fear ePUB ç Dawn of PDF/EPUB ² dawn ebok, fear epub, Dawn of free, Dawn of Fear PDFMost of this book seemed to be an old fashioned story for boys Set in World War II it follows three boys Peter Derek and Geoffrey and their lives living on a street at that time We see them build a secret camp and the tensions between them and the 'Children from the White Road' And like many such books things are 'smashing' and 'beastly'But there's a darker side to book we see the war in the background and how they don't know a life without it They don't fully understand the dangers and long to be closer to the excitement delaying going into shelters to try see a dogfight It's not till the end of the book that they suddenly appreciate how awful the war isI wanted to enjoy this book but I found for me there was a bit much on their camp and mud ball fights etc which dragged on It emphasises the impact of the ending on the ordinary b
