Final Post - End of Book Thoughts

Your journey with My Friend the Enemy has come to an end, I hope you enjoyed it. I want you to spend some time reflecting on the book. Think about the characters, the time period, and the main events in the story.

  • What did you enjoy most about the book? 
  • Was there anything you didn't like about the book? 
  • What did you think about the way the story ended? 
  • Was there anything you wish would have happened that didn't? 
Please use specific details from the story to support your thinking. Be honest about your feelings and thinking, this is your time to reflect on your book. Make sure to answer ALL questions.

Week 5 Discussion Question

Hazel is worried about Sogoji being discovered and wants to come up with a plan. Sogoji tells Hazel, "If they find, they find. It is shikatoganai." He explains it to mean that, "Something must happen. Can't be helped." How is Sogoji so calm about his current situation when Hazel is not? Do you believe Sogoji's thinking to be true? Are there some things that can't be helped? How can you apply this to Jed 'missing in action?'

Please use a RAD response and check your conventions before you publish. Remember to explain your thinking and type it in your blogging doc first!
