    One thought on “Windcatcher”

    1. I must be fair. There is a reason why Avi’s books have been popular. In the 1990’s, this book would have been well-read by young people- especially boys. It’s written well and has a strong plot. It’s a heartwarming story. But in comparison to similar books in today’s market, the characters do not hook me. There is conflict, but not enough to keep me reading, but I did, to give it a full chance. It occurred to me that Windcatcher is a perfect ‘mentor text’ for those of us who are as [...]

    2. I kinda liked this book because it wasn't very interesting and it skipped around a lot so it was hard to catch up on what was happening.

    3. In 1777, His Majesty’s ship the Swallow foundered on the deadly rocks which surrounded an unidentified island. The Swallow and its entire cargo – which included an iron chest filled with the payroll from General Burgoyne’s army – was lost. Only one of its crew members survived.Two hundred years later, Tony Souza yearns to purchase a motor scooter with the three hundred dollars he made delivering newspapers at six o’clock every morning. But, being four years shy of the fifteen year old [...]

    4. Avi- Windcatcher (Avon Books 1992) 3.75 StarsTony has just bought his first small sailboat and he is going to stay with his grandma for a couple of weeks to learn how to sail. While out sailing he comes across a couple in a motorboat hunting for a long lost treasure. Curiosity gets the better of him, and he finds himself following the couple around. When he finds himself lost and confused out in the water, the couple is too busy searching for their treasure to help him. Will he ever find land? O [...]

    5. I've come to love Avi as a writer. Most of his books are hits, and rarely are they ever a miss. This was no exception. It was exciting, it was fun, it was informative about sailing (at least to my landlubber tastes, having never set sail ever) and it was a treat to read.But I have to say, the ending was really terrible. There was TALK of resolving the plot of the entire book, but it's as if the last ten pages are missing, since no one actually does anything to resolve it. If Avi bothered to actu [...]

    6. Avi is a weird dude, the book is meant for the young but has no depth at all. Not very mysterious for a mystery. Avi obviously does NOT know how to sail, based on comments like "His teacher told him to come about. He pushed the tiller away and she said 'No! the other way!'"Supposedly the kid learns enough in two lesons to take this boat out alone in the ocean, now that is the true mystery.

    7. the book was not very intortaning because the mane carictor is just wind surfing. tony was inoying it seemes in the book. It seemed like he is just sitting around all day. i feel like doing something else insteed. if I was the ather I'd make tony do more athletic stuff. but one of the things i liked is windsurfing. there should be more heroic and saving and romantic seance for tony. i would of improved

    8. This was all right, I guess, but I've gotten used to expecting better from Avi. Since a boat was involved, I was hoping for some of the excitement of The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, but this didn't come close.

    9. Avi does a great job of writing a believable young boy who doesn't realize how naive he is in his search for treasure. The trouble he gets into is not overdone, and the mystery he is trying to solve feels probable. The ending is a disappointment for character and also the reader, but it suits the story.

    10. I really liked this book and I will definitely use it as a recommendation to boys at my library. It's got adventure, treasure, danger but is set in a real life situation so it feels like it is about every boy. You'll want to go sailing after reading it!

    11. Audio book. Must be juvenile fiction. I expected more. However, what kid does not like the idea of looking for treasure? Just for myself, I would have ranked it two stars but for juvenile fiction I would rank it 3.

    12. Another good AVI adventure but the ending is a little less than satisfying. I would have liked to have more answers at the end. It has a story line that is easy to follow and nice excitement but not scary so I'd say it's good for ages 9+.

    13. Avi is a great author but I am always left wanting more. This book felt like he wrote the first half of the story, got bored with it and just ended the book. I was hoping for more

    14. Not interesting enough to keep me hooked's about a boy who tries to find a wrecked ship before 2 other people also searching for it.

    15. It's been a while since I've read this book. Seems like I didnt like it when I read it. Can't remember what the book was about though. Guess it didn't make an impression on me.

    16. A young boy learns to sail while visiting his grandmother on the Connecticut coast. He also tries to solve a mystery about a hidden treasure from an old shipwreck.

    17. I read it in like 4th grade, so I really don't remember it that well. The only thing I can remember is that the ending is really good!

    19. Disappointing. I usually love Avi, but this book didn't live up to my expectiations. It had great potential, but it seemed thrown together, and the end was abrupt.

    20. This is a really good book for international students to learn English, every school has a ESL class should have this book!!!
