  • Day Three (Part Two)

    Posted on 06/12/11 by in Kara's blog posts, 18 Comments

    The day that we left home to come to Owl Hall, Martin told me that he’d had a dream in the night – a bad dream.

    In his dream, he was reading a book. He said the book was the story of his life. He was reading the book and, as he was turning the pages, he could feel the end of the book getting closer and closer. I mean … he looked at the pages he’d read and there were hundreds of pages, but there were only a few pages left to read. And Martin thought: that’s not right. I’m thirteen. There should be thousands of pages still to read.

    When he told me about the dream, he looked scared so I tried to make him feel better. I said that maybe there were different books in the story of his life. Maybe he had to finish that book before starting another. We were talking in my bedroom at home and I pointed at all the books on the bookshelf and said, ‘There are lots of books on the shelf.’ And he said, ‘In your room there are lots of books. But there aren’t any books in my room.’

    He was right. I’d never thought of it before but there weren’t any books in his bedroom. He said he liked his room to be like a prison cell.

    I don’t know why I’m telling you this. Maybe because Martin was in the dream I just had tonight. I mean he was really in the dream. He must have been there! When I started telling him about it, he already knew what I had dreamed.

    Do people ever have the same dream? I wonder if identical twins ever have identical dreams and appear in each other’s dreams. It’s strange. I think I’m going crazy. Martin is not my identical twin. He’s my brother. So what was he doing in my dream??


    Be careful! Some comments might give you clues to the story.

    This story is getting strange I wonder how is it going to end?
    Maybe Martin is going to become friend with the stranger?

    We don’t really think Martin’s cool, but we like the story. It’s a little complicated. Our favourite character is The Max :)

    Hi, our names are Cristina and Sofia from the IES Galileo Galilei, and we are reading your book and your blog. About the book, we like it because it’s a mystery book. We liked when you had a nightmare about the incident. Did you have another nightmare like this? We are looking forward to your answer. XOXO

    Hi Kara! Our names are Mariam and Andrea. We are reading the book in the school. We think the book is a mystery. ‘The incident’ is very spooky. We think ‘the incident’ talks about fire. Howard is good and he’s your doctor. We love the story about you and John. Our favourite character is Max :) .We are looking forward to reading the second part.

    Hi, I’m Sergio, I’m fourteen years old and I’m from Madrid, Spain. I’m reading Owl Hall because we are reading in English class.
    I think the book Owl Hall is a very good book. At first thought that the book will be boring. But when I started to read it I changed my first impression, because Owl Hall is an interesting book. Also, I like this book because when you read a chapter you need to read the next -, you can’t stop. I understand Kara because my brother is like her brother. I expect to read more chapters.
    Best wishes.

    Hello we are Inés and Edu and we go to Galileo Galilei high school, and this is our opinion.
    We think that this story is a little boring, because it isn’t interesting but when we started to read we couldn’t stop.
    More forward we think that Martin is going to become a ghost for fault of the fire, and he and Kara have the same dream. We also think that Kara’s doctor is Howard.
    Finally we think that Howard and Kara’s mother have a relationship. We are interested in the end of the story, because we left with scheme.

    Hi! We’re Camila Sabatino and Sergio Rubio.
    The book is interesting. We don’t trust Howard either, we think he’s strange.
    We are very confused about Martin, we don’t know why he left, or why he was kidnapped.
    We think that the dream you had is related with something that has to came.
    We’re looking forward to a mysterious end. Good luck.

    Hi! We’re Raquel (fifteen) and Daniela (fourteen). We’re from Madrid, Spain. And we’re reading this book.

    We think the book Owl Hall is interesting because there’s something strange happening in Owl Hall. In our opinion the start of the book was a little boring and we thought that the book isn’t going to like us, but then we read more chapters the book started to be very interesting. When you started to read a chapter you can’t stop to read the other chapters. We understand Kara because she think like us and because her brother is like my sister. We think that ‘the incident’ is somenthing bad what happened in the past. And we have the impression that it’s going to happen somenthing spooky or bad in Owl Hall.

About the blog, we like the Owl Hall video. We are looking forward to your answer, regards.

    Hi! We’re Adri and Javi.

    When we started reading the book, we thought that the book was boring, but, in the chapter when Kara and Matin dreamed about the same thing the book became interesting, because it’s like a paranoia.

    We like more the Kara’s entries than the book.

    The book is very good. WE LIKE IT SO MUCH!

    We look forward to reading more chapters.

    Hello Kara, we are two girls from Galileo Galilei School, we’re reading your book and we think it’s very interesting and mysterious, we think it’s very strange that both of you had the same dream.
    In the last three chapters we think that Kara and John will find Martin, we hope the final of the book will be awesome.
    We are fourteen years old.

    I can’t stop thinking about this story. I want to read it all and figure out who’s crazy, who’s the ghost and everything else. I hope my students love it just as I do.

    It looks really strange. You can’t have the same dreams. But if it’s true, you have got some problems. You became crazy)))))
