||By: Thomas Hughs
|45 % : A very good read for teenage boys
|Review : It is an interesting read for the adventure and for the historical
picture of 19 th century England.
|meaning : English countryside is beautiful, don't cheat, bully, learn
to fight, team spirit, protect others (helps you grow up), teaches have
the best interests of the boys at heart.
|comments : History of a boys schooling at Rugby in the 1830s. Wriiten
for the authors son'and probably based on his own experiences.
We see Tom's life through a number of different episodes as a result
of which he moves away from following a bad path and grows up to bea strong
A number of times the book seems to push too much religious propoganda
strange - a weird rugby game and the boys are given beer on Saturdays
