Report by David D
The novel ‘Abomination’ by Robert Swindells is a novel which shows you how important it is to have a good friend. This novel also shows us how hard some peoples’ lives can be because of some thing or parents
This novel tells the story of a young girl called Martha and a boy called Scott who become friends. They both go to the same school but both are treated as outsiders. Martha is sad because of her parents but that is not the worst-she has a secret she has to keep for her parents. When Scott finds out he is angry and decides to save the baby and Martha. The ending of the novel is very exciting and everything works out well.
The main characters in the novel are called Martha and Scott. Both of them take turns to tell their side of story each chapter. There are other characters in the story like Mum Dad Jim and Mary.
We find a lot about Martha and Scott. Martha is a girl who belongs to a religion called The Righteous she doesn’t wear nice clothes. They gradually become good friends and the author shows us this from both points of view when Martha says I like you Scott. Scott also shows us from this I like you two
Together they decide to deal with Martha’s biggest secret which is that there’s a boy in the cellar
The author uses a lot of suspense in the story. The most important thing he does to keep his readers interested is not to let us know about abomination. The most exiting part of the book I thought was when they find out that’s Marys at the door
Another part of the book I liked was when Scott finds out the secret
After Scott finds out the secret, the story still has a puzzle to solve, like where Mary is
At the end we fell sorry for Scott because he loved Martha, but the author gives us one more surprise Martha is going to use the internet so she can contact Scott
Overall, I thought that’s the book is was one of the best books I ever read
