ここ最近、出会った本の中で最も面白いノンフィクションの一つ。若い読者には特に興味を持つだろう。エベレスト山は、永遠に興味が尽きず、この小説においては登場人物の一人のようだ。1921年に英国の最初の探検におけるジョージ・マロイの行方不明の謎について語られ、山の魅力的な情報と登山家たちを一世紀の間、ひきつけたマロイの挑戦が、絡み合うようにリンクする。そして素晴らしい写真も掲載されている。

Not Above the Law
By Richard MacAndrew, (Cambridge English Readers, Cambridge University Press), ISBN: 9780521140966

Teacher’s comment: A real page-turner of a detective story. My class found the opening scene particularly gripping and it set them on to reading the rest of the story at full tilt. They thoroughly enjoyed the story. They liked the setting and the interaction between the characters. And they thought the ending was quite moving. A really good detective story.

A Lion Called Christian
By Anthony Bourke and John Rendall, adapted by Jane Revell. (Scholastic), ISBN: 9781905775934

Student’s comment: This is such a heart-warming and touching story describing a deep affection between Christian and the two men. I felt strongly that it doesn’t matter whether a human or a wild animal in terms of love. Despite their close relationship, the scene wild animals’ instinct sometimes appears brought me to the reality.

Two Worlds
By Helen Everett-Camplin. (Cambridge Discovery Readers, Cambridge University Press), ISBN: 9788483235638

Student’s comment: The connections between the three stories are very surprising and I think the book isn’t too sad and it’s realistic and enables you to think about life and a lot of things.
