Thunder on The Tennesse - March 10, 2010

I really liked Thunder on The Tennessee because it used a lot of detail and feelings. What I mean by feelings is that it really expressed Will's feelings, Will is the main character. Throughout the book I felt for Will, I felt bad that he had to leave his girl friend also because he thought the battle would only last a few months. But he didn't let leaving the girl behind stop him. The author did a great job writing this book.

I felt really bad for Will when he was on his first day and he spent the whole day fighting and marching. Will's dad was a colonel. He and Will were really close. They spent all of Will's birthday's together Will wanted to be just like his dad. But on the final charge when his dad was the last officer left he was shot. To balls hit him in the chest. He was taken to the medical tent but only lasted a few hours. I think that Will really had to toughen up because of hid fathers death. I think he showed great character.

I think that the problem was basically the war because Will was taken from his family with only his dad and then his dad died. I think the problem was that he had to toughen up after his dad died. I think the problem was actually resolved when he went home.


  1. I like how the problem was unexpected. It was very clever. This entry had a lot of details about how Will felt about things and how he dealt with them. I can really imagine what Will is like. I would like to know more about other characters in this story like Will's old girlfriend. How she felt about this bold move. I thought this entry was good overall.

  2. I liked the blog entry because like 170672 said it had lots of details about how Will felt in the story. I wanted to know a bit more about how Will felt about his father when he had died. You wrote a bit about it but I wanted to know more deeply. It was very good otherwise.
