SMS Guys Read Talks up The Eagle of the Ninth

 Hello Readers,

Yesterday we had our first SMS Guys Read meeting of 2011 and it was a rocking hour!  The first thing on our agenda was to talk about The Eagle of the Ninth.  Over the winter break I handed out copies of The Eagle… telling the guys to give it a shot.  I knew it might be tricky for a few lads, but at least give it a try.  We wanted to read the book so we could go see the new movie version of the book, The Eagle, which comes out on February 11.

Below you will find a link to the seven minute debate we had over the book.  Some of the guys really enjoyed the book and others felt it was too slow and confusing for them.  Take a look and then let us know what you think.

Read on,

Mr. H

  2. That was a GREAT conversation, guys!! Can’t wait to hear what you think about the movie.
    I’m in chapter XII of the book–Marcus and Esca are about to stay the night in the deserted Roman fort where the Ninth used to live. Brrr–it gives me chills, it’s so creepy.

    I would like to know when we are going to see the movie because i have hockey tryouts for the salem team on the 16th.
