War Horse is about a horse named Joey during World War I. He has to leave his home and his owner who he loves. It's really sad, but he keeps fighting to survive. I saw the movie, and I like the book a lot.

Anne Frank is a real person who lived in Amsterdam during WWII. She and her family, who were Jewish, had to hide from the Nazis in the back of her father's office. It's incredible how brave they were. I like the book, but I also hate it because I dread what going to happen to her. (I already know.)

The first rule about fight club is you don't talk about fight club. Fight Club's narrator quits his job when he meets Tyler Durden, who holds secret boxing matches in the basement of bars. There two men fight "as long as they have to." This is incredible writing that focuses on the core of our modern world.
