A Book Report By Matt Whyman Cleopatra is a supercomputer hidden with in a building. Carl Hobbes is an 18 year-old genius famous for hacking computers. If you put them both together throw in a girlfriend (for Carl) and a bounty hunter as well as an assign and you have the plot for my latest book. This 262-page book is nothing to sneeze at. While it starts off a little slow it really is building up for and explosive ending. (Literally) this story is told quite well and easy to red due to it incredibly short chapters. 51 in all over the aforementioned 262 pages and that averages out to just over 5 pages a chapter. Due to that fact this book is a fast read and can be read anywhere at any time no matter how little time you have. The book’s good writing makes it easy to read as well. While I admit I almost gave up on it twice I am glad that I did not. The storyline is crisp and original and the characters while two-dimensional are original as well. This makes the book hard to put down and easy to get through. This book was recommended for any fan of the Percy Jackson series. While I see nothing in common with that series I did enjoy the book. It was creative and well written a joy to read in the end. Grade B-

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
