The students’opinion

I enjoyed reading this book because the stars are real and various. This book is brilliant because the intrigue is ingenious and it’s about lots of people. One negative point is the first chapter which is boring to me. I didn’t like it because it wasn’t fictitious. I wished it would be shorter. I thought the book was only about Rock and Roll stars’ lives. I wished there were less historical explanations and more details about the biographies.

They belong to the Montague and Capulet families who are rivals. The story takes place in 1979 in Nevada in America. Their love is impossible.

The students’ opinion

I think this book is great because I like romantic stories but I don’t like the end because it is too tragic. According to me, the book is interesting because the story is full of suspense.
