Books are our never failing friends . They stand with us during every situation in our life . They uphold us and encourage us when we feel sad and disappointed . They help us forget our burden, they educate us and teach us important lessons .
Good books are the life-blood of a nation . Books bring enlightenment to people and thus become fond of knowledge . When we read biographies of famous people we move and associate with them . Books are the collection of man’s experience over thousands of years . They are a treasure house of noble thoughts .A person’s favourite book is the one that is liked by him the most . Everyone has his/her choices .Some may like story books, others like detective books and science fiction. According to me the book I like the most is Malory towers which was written by Enid Blyton . I received this book as a present from my friend and little did i know that this book would change me in so many ways .
The main character of this novel is Darell Rivers, with whom the novel developed . The other characters include Darell’s best friends Alicia Johns and Sally Hope . Apart from them other great characters are also portrayed in this novel . This story is about a girl named Darell Rivers who goes to a new school after an incident at her old school , as Darell takes a new step at her new school malory towers she goes through many adventures, mysteries and secrets . As a girl , I was attracted to the character Darell Rivers . She was a great character that worked hard and had put lots of effort into studying even though she had a disorder called mind blindness but still she did not give up . Though she had a bad temper she still tried to control it and follow great moral values . She is really good at making friends and cheering everyone up. She also helps everyone and solves their problems .
After reading this book I improved my grades and made some of the most amazing friends . The character in this book gave me someone to look up to and gave a positive impact to my character. Of all the books I have read , Malory Towers is the one I like the most . So books bring light to darkness and we should be very judicious about book selection because friendship with good books is the medicine of life but there are some books that are dangerous . The best books sharpen our intelligence , broaden our minds, enrich our experience , widen our knowledge , uplift our morals and make us better , nobler and happier. Books are like gold mines . They enlighten us and widen our vision and sympathy . They take us to those remote places that we have not seen , those heights we can never scale and those fairytale lands that we can hardly imagine.
A drawing room for its decoration needs well designed furniture and printed curtains but it cannot be complete without a bookshelf . Books are truly the best companion a person can have .
