The story ta The Ice Road by: Jaap Ter Haar. I have recently finished reading a historical fiction book called The Ice Road. I have really enjoyed reading this book, though it was a bit hard to understand initially when I first read the book.

The Seven Basic Plots: Why We Tell Stories is a 2004 book by Christopher Booker containing a Jung-influenced analysis of stories and their psychological meaning. Booker worked on the book for thirty-four years. The meta-plot begins with the anticipation stage, in which the hero is called to the adventure to come. This is followed by a dream stage, in which the adventure begins, the hero has some success, and has an illusion of invincibility

Boris Johnson will return to Downing Street with a big majority after the Conservatives swept aside Labour in its traditional heartlands

Boris Johnson will return to Downing Street with a big majority after the Conservatives swept aside Labour in its traditional heartlands. With just a handful of seats left to declare in the general election, the BBC forecasts a Tory majority of 78. The prime minister said it would give him a mandate to "get Brexit done" and take the UK out of the EU next month.

I read it in 1970 when I was boy. A teacher had me read it for an English class. It was nice to read it again. And yes, it did bring a tears to my eyes. It shows the horrors of war, but with news nowadays, we see and hear and read about much worse than what is in the book. Reading it when I was young, when we had bombing drills in school, and had to dive under our desks or go into the basements in school, was scary. The ending might be anti-climatic.

I found this book to bring a new perspective on war and what it does to a country and, particularly, the youth in that country. They have to adapt to horrendous situations, but have no choice.. It is do or die. I think this would be a great book to teach to high school students, not to replace the classics, but to augment their over-all understanding of what war is and its horrendous effects.

This is a great book for the older child child. I read this to my 4th-6th graders years ago. Along with some visual aids, I gave them some of the geographical and historical background of the book so they could grasp some of the extreme hardships that the people of Leningrad had to endure. It was one of, if not THE best book, I ever read to them. They loved it and I am happy to have found a copy for my grandson.

Read this book in 7th grade. It was the first book I truly became engrossed in and cared truly about the characters. I remember debating even stealing it from our classroom at the end of the year. That's how much I liked it. Buying it for nostalgia. Hope it holds up.

Historical fiction
Boris is a child in Leningrad during the Siege of 1942-43. His fight for survival, not simply in body but also in spirit, is extraordinarily well-written by Dutch historian Jaap ter Haar. The gruesome aspects of the 500 days are softened without losing authenticity or the power to move the reader to a broader view of compassion in war.
My 5th and 6th grade students are astounded by the child's experiences and his eventual view of war and human goodness. When reading Boris we also watch the World At War segment on the Siege of Leningrad. Some of the scenes in the newsreel footage seem to include Boris.
Written in graceful prose, it is a favorite among our readers. Boris is quite a compelling way to look at human rights and how in the midst of war and hatred some people manage to live honorable lives.
Chosen book of the year in Holland. Boris should be reprinted by Dell Yearling.
