How I Live Now
Fifteen-year-old Daisy leaves her home in Manhattan to visit England's farm country--the home of her aunt and the four cousins she's never before met. Shortly after Daisy's arrival, her aunt goes off on a business trip, leaving her children and Daisy on the family farm. The next day, London is invaded and England finds itself suddenly at war. Without adult supervision, Daisy and her cousins must come together to survive the horrors of life during wartime.
I loved the book how i live now because i isn't only a romance novel, but there is also action. I think it is a geat read for ages 14 up and i like the setting as weel. It is also a great book to get lost in and imagine it as it is real. This would be an amasing movie!!
An excellent chilling book. Nothing is properly spelled out, you are in suspense. We know that London is attacked but not who the enemy is. Daisy and her cousins must find their way to safety as war rages around them in a scary unexplained world.
This was a very good book, good for ages 14-18 and up. It had things that people of that age group would understand and like. I enjoyed most of the book.
When I was reading it in class with other students we also watch Tomorrow, When The War Began and while I was watching that it was very similar to How I Live Now it starts out all wonderful with family and friends then later on they have to learn how to survive on there own
How I Live Now, is a book about two cousins that fall in love during the war.
Due to complications, they're split up for a significant amount of time. I had to read this for class, I really didn't enjoy it.
It's not about the whole incest thing that made me not enjoy it, but I guess the way it was written made it hard for me to really understand what was going on. The book is written as if it was a diary, there were capital letters where they weren't needed. There were no quotation marks at any point of the book, and just everything was messy.
I hated it. But like I said, I had to read it for a class novel in school.
This book is really good but at times the interest can die away and then there are people in the book that just don't seem to belong I would tell anyone to read this book but there are parts of this book that would make me think again
