6th Grade entry - Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

6th graders at WOMS have been invited to post guest entries on my blog for YA books they’ve recently read. This is Hunter’s entry. Thanks, Hunter!

By Suzanne Weyn
Scholastic Inc., 186 p.

Swashbuckling archaeologist "Indiana Jones" is back with another "glowing" adventure! The time is 1935. After a narrow escape from death in Shanghi, Jones finds himself in a secluded village somewhere in India. A strange shaman tells Jones that he has been awaiting him. He tells Jones that he and his comrades are destine to liberate the villagers.

Indiana Jones is the most interesting character in the book. He is brave and strong and always wears his hat and black leather jacket in his adventures. His trademarks are his hat and his bullwhip! He is a hero who always does the right thing. All of his adventures take place in exciting parts of the world and that is why I think he is so interesting.

The action is what keeps drawing me back to reading these adventure books. I like the authors style of writing and sentence fluency.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read adventure stories. The exciting places Indiana Jones travels to in his books are like taking a vacation to a foreign land with him. The book is full of action packed thrills on every page.
