Transcript of The White Mountains Ciaran

The White Mountains
Author: John Christopher
Main Character
The main character is Will. He is the main character because he was supposed to be leaving on his own to the White mountains so the book was going to be about him.
The main character in this book is a good guy. He might seem bad as he escaped from home. He really did it because he didn't want to be capped so he went to a place where there are no Tripods.
Is he good or bad
The setting of this book is a lot of places as they are traveling. One of them that I think is important is the village that they live in. Another one is the castle that they rested at and Will watched a tournament there.

Science Fiction
This book is science fiction because it has technology and aliens.
Yes, the characters were all believable. They were scared when the boat was being attacked by waves. They react like any other person would if that happened.
Meeting A Character
I would like to meet Will, because I could ask him questions that he could answer that weren't in the book.
Like a Character
I like Will because he is very brave and he perseveres. He always wanted to carry on in the journey even though it meant leaving his parents. He was strong.
