Answer the following questions about your historical fiction book. ANSWER IN COMPLETE SENTENCES! Please label each number. 1. Title & Author 2. # of pages and how far I read 3. Setting etc.

1. I choose Pudd'nhead Wilson` By mark Twain

2. My book has 153 pages in it and I stopped on page 64.

3. The setting is a fictional Missouri frontier town of Dawson's in the 19th century

4. since it is a story about slavery written almost forty years after the end of the Civil War. Certainly race was still a pressing contemporary issue for Twain at the time: by 1893 Reconstruction had failed and race relations in the United States were a mess. Although a black man no longer had to fear being sold "down the river" as Roxy and Chambers do, extreme forms of violence were a distinct possibility


6. My first impression was that I thought it was going to be very interesting and that there was going to be plenty of racism in it..

1. I chose A Night To Remember by Walter Lord

2. My book is 188 pages long and I stopped at page 12.

3. My book is set in April of 1912, in the Atlantic Ocean.

4. In this book, the author shows what happened in every moment of the fateful night. There is not one main character, but every character has the same importance in the story. The book shows everything from the warnings from the crows nest of icebergs to the accounts of what the Titanic looked like as it was sinking.

6. My first impression of the book is that it is going to be a very interesting book and that I will learn a lot about what happened that night. I think it will be a very good factual book and that it will be exciting.
