Reduce Your Co2

Author: Charan | Filed under: My Thoughts

This is how I think you can reduce your Co2, by using computers less and using less electronics. Like in this video, the person with the face is using the computer to play games, for 2 hours, but the person with no face only used the computer for 1 hour. That is what I think you should do if you use computers for half your day, and reduce your carbon footprint.

What I Think Is The Best Renewable Energy For Thailand

Author: Charan | Filed under: My Thoughts

I think solar energy is the most convenient energy that Thailand can use. Solar energy, because we are on the equator, which means, one of the hottest places in the world. But the drawback of solar energy in Thailand, is that solar cells cost a lot. Also it takes up a lot land, which could destroy animal habitats, because they have to cut down trees for space. Even though they might cost a lot, I encourage you to buy them, if you are near the equator, like here in aThailand, because you can stop Global Warming, and you can use more renewable energy.

Book Review: The Throne of Fire

 

Book Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★/5

 

The Throne of Fire is the second book of the series of The Kane Chronicles. I prefer the first book in the series, but this one is also humorous and adventurous. Rick Riordan, the author of the Percy Jackson series, also created this series.

 

The Throne of Fire is about Carter and Sadie Kane having a 5-day deadline… until a snake, (aka, Apophis) swallows the Sun, (aka, Ra). Apophis is the monster of Chaos that has been trapped in the Daut, (the mirror world of the Earth) from the dawn of Egypt. Now that Ra, the only God who can actually stand a chance against Apophis, has too been exiled into the Daut, Carter and Sadie have to bring him back.

 

Carter and Sadie Kane are the descendants of pharaohs, and are strong magicians who hosted the Gods in book 1. Carter is 14 years old, and Sadie is turning 14.  Now since they have let the Gods leave them, they are weaker then they are. Even though they wanted to keep hosting the Gods, (Carter hosted Horus, and Sadie hosting Isis) they knew the power could be too overwhelming, and could destroy them.

 

Since the Kane’s had hosted with the Gods, and cooperated with the Gods, the House of Life is after them. The House of Life controls different Nomes around the world, and the Nomes contain magicians who follow the House of Life, the 1st Nome, which is the most powerful Nome, (though is falling apart), in Egypt.

 

But there are some Nomes like the 21st Nome in Brooklyn, which is where the Kane’s know what the real problem is, and is trying to persuade the Chief Lector, (the leader of the House of Life), Michel Desjardins, to side with them and face the real enemy, Apophis.

 

Rick Riordan is the author of this series, The Kane Chronicles, he is also the series of the Percy Jackson and the Olympian series, and the Heroes of Olympus series. He is also the author of the Tres Navarre series, winner of the top 3 awards in the mystery genre. He lives is San Antonio, Texas, lives with his wife and two sons.

 

I hope you read this book, also the series, which includes the 1st book The Red Pyramid, and the 3rd book, The Serpents Shadow. I also recommend that you read the other series, which I know that you will enjoy. Thank you for reading my book review.

Book Review: Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief

 

Book Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★/5

 

Percy Jackson…the best fantasy novel ever! This book is the first book in the series of Percy Jackson and The Olympians. It is a series by Rick Riordan. I think this is the best book in the series because it has a lot of adventure and excitement

 

Percy Jackson is a 12-year-old troublemaker who goes to a boarding school called Yancy Academy in New York. Also he thinks that he is not that important and unknown, but later he finds out his importance. He has also been kicked out of 5 schools, but at this school, everything changed, and he became known.

 

He suddenly was taken out of his school by a weird turn of events including a monster named Mrs. Dodds his math teacher, and his Latin teacher Mr. Brunner, and landed in a summer school called Camp Half –Blood. It is a camp for kids who have special parentage, like Percy who has only his mom to take care of him. When he arrives at this camp, he is surprised to find out who is dad is, and who is dad’s siblings and family are, and what he has to do to save the world with his 2 friends Grover and Annabethe from his dad’s and his brother’s anger.

 

Rick Riordan is the author of the Heroes Of Olympus series, also the Kane Chronicles, and also this series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians. He is also the author of the hugely popular Tres Navarre series, winner of the top 3 awards in the mystery genre. He lives is San Antonio, Texas, lives with his wife and two sons.

 

I would recommend this book to you because of its great adventure and suspense, also because; in my opinion is the best book that Rick Riordan has created so far. Thank you for reading my book review.

Book Review: Shadow Dragons

Author: Charan | Filed under: Book Reviews

This book review is about the book, The Shadow Dragons. It is by James A. Owen, who lives in Arizona, America.

The Shadow Dragons is the 4th book in the series “The Chronicles of The Imaginarium Geographica” Where the 3 main characters, John, Jack, and Charles have to destroy the “shadow” of their enemy. Though this is in the other world which is called The Archipelago Of Dreams. Though these 2 are connected, in this timeline, whereas World War 2 has already started in the normal world, it hasn’t started in the Archipelago. The Shadow King, as the people call him, is trying to take over the world, and these 3 characters need to stop him from doing that.

If I had to rate this book, I would rate it a 3/5, but I would rate the series a 4/5. I would rate this one 3 because it is not as good as the first book, because there is not much excitement in this book, as there was in the 1st book.
