The Divided City

Im asylum seeker and his girlfriend With all the old rivalries and fears A gripping tale about two boys who must find their own answers and their own way forward in a world divided by differenc.

When I finished this book I was a bit puzzled I still couldn t understand that the whole city is divided into two parts having different religions different traditions different football teams If there are so many differences what connected these groups Why there are living togetherNevertheless I was so deeply impressed by this book because it was written brilliantly Of course I admired the football match descriptions and the teenagers dreams of them playing in the World Cup final Of course I was nearly interested in asylum seekers problem because this is urgent problem nowadaysAt first I thought that Graham s character was too common but then I realized that if it wasn t Graham s evolution wouldn t seem so broad However I still think that such a marvelous book deserves better final It is too simple and predictable To my mind it is so because this book is written for teenagers and in the end everybody should be happy Anyway I loved this book and have no regrets of reading it

D He just wants to play football with his new mate Joe But when he witnesses a shocking moment of violence suddenly he and Joe are involved With Catholics and with Protestants With a young Musl. I mostly liked this book It describes the story of two boys who belong to different religions Also they support different football teams It seems that one has to treat another just like another stranger and best be on his way out Atmosphere in which live each of them should have big influence on them But they become good friends although they have different world outlook they believe in different things support different teams Graham is the main character of this book He changes with the development of the plot At the beginning he was a bit selfish but then he starts to respect other people and take care of his parents He becomes adult Joe the second boy by this time has already succeeded in some of these aspects You can compare how Joe speaks to his father and how Graham locked in his room Their attitude to their parents is my favourite part of book because this is problem which you can see everywhere I also cannot brag about my good behaviour but I try to correct the situation I believe that I have reached some succes in this part of my life And some my friends speaks to their parents as though they are servants In my mind it is unfair behaviour Very unfair For me football was the background Also I expected sweety final where painted in detail the fate of the main characters at least ten years ahead Bur the final was uite epic I do not know it is good or not for meI think that Theresa Breslin described the way that every teenager must pass to become a responsible adult man Graham s problems are in common with many children in his age
