Creating a Culture of Reading in PNG

Hi BookWorms!

Welcome to PNG BOOKCLUB.

Where we talk Books, books and more books!!

Following the explosive growth of a Facebook group page of the same name, it seemed necessary that we record the opinions of passionate readers of books in a blog; so that they can be later collated and/or picked out. This page is an attempt to properly record book reviews by the People of PNG who are into reading.

I trust that this will encourage more and more Papua New Guineans to read more and more books. And this may lead to better mindsets and attitudes and in the end: PROGRESS.

Readers can send their Book Reviews to and we will have them posted on this page for access by all. We will also try to post reviews posted on the Facebook group as much as we can.

How To write a Book Review

Reviews need not be any longer than 500 words. I don’t have much idea how to write a Book Review so I just googled “book review format” and found this website, and pasted the format below:

Here is the book review format in which to follow:

Steps to Follow When Writing a Book Review:

(Note: You do not have to answer every question, these are only suggestions to guide your writing.)

1.Write at least 3-4 sentences about the plot

•What was the story about?
•Who were the main characters?
•What did the main characters do in the story?
•Did the main characters run into any problems?
•Did the main characters have any adventures?
•Who was your favorite character? Why?

2.Your personal experiences

•Could you relate to any of the characters in the story?
•Have you ever done some of the things or felt some of the same things that the characters did?

3.Your opinion

•Did you like the book?
•What was your favorite part of the book?
•Do you have a least favorite part of the book?
•If you could change something in the book, what would it be? (If you wish you could change the ending, remember not to tell the ending to the
story you read!)

4. Your recommendation

•Would you recommend this book to another person?
•What type of person would like this book?

Hope you find this site helpful in enlarging your library and doing some serious reading.

Heavenise day!
