ESL Book Review: Just Like a Movie

Just Like a Movie is an absorbing novel for adults studying at a starting degree of English.

Sue Leather, creator of this e-book and several other others, spoke at a convention I attended. She stated she had a tendency to write down homicide mysteries; typically she tried to write down a romance, however a corpse all the time discovered its means into the story. That tendency is clearly at work right here.

I am a handyman, like I instructed you. I imply, I was a handyman. I labored on homes and workplace buildings in Toronto. Hard work and never a lot of cash. Well, at some point I did some work in Rosedale, the wealthy space of Toronto. Really wealthy. I used to be at a home. Carrie’s home. I met her there . . .

Brad Black, the narrator, is self-centered and grasping — however he is aware of tips on how to make ladies belief him. When he meets rich, lonely Carrie, he decides to marry her for her cash. He figures he’ll return to his actual love, Gina, and dwell fortunately ever after, as soon as he arranges for Carrie to have an “accident”.

Brad’s seen too many films. He learns the onerous means that life is not like one. Although he isn’t a likeable character, and definitely not a hero, his story is compelling proper as much as the tip.

This may be very simple studying, however the themes of exploitation and homicide make it a e-book for adults.

Just Like a Movie (2000 by Sue Leather, Cambridge University Press: English Readers, Level 1, 32 pages) can be obtainable as an audiobook.
