    I started reading this book not to long ago, and so far it’s pretty good, but it doesn’t top my favorite books so far (The Cavendish home and Fourmile) but it’s not bad so far. I hope it gets better though, and the swears in this book are quite consistant but once again I don’t mind. I think this can be a pretty decent book.

    I think this book is remarkably realistic, and I think the swear words are there to make the characters who use them more believable. Decent all the way! Kate Davie

    After Eli is a very good book because Eli has a lot going on in his life. It is very sad because Eli’s brother dies. If you want a interesting book then After Eli is the book for you.

    After Eli is kind of a sad book but I really liked it. He did the last thing i would expect around the end of the book in Eli’s room. over all it is an excellent book that i would recommend to anybody who is interested in realistic fictional books.

    I really didn’t like After Eli. The excessive usage of swears really ticked me off. I liked the fact that Simon played the oboe, because I do! Once again, I really didn’t like the use of so many swears.

    I thought that After Eli created a realistic picture of modern Vermont and the people that live in it. There were many details that contributed to that realism, and I guess the swear words may have been part of that. But there are plenty of other books on the list that are free of swear words, so there is still lots of reading you can do! Kate Davie

    This is one of my all time favorite books! I personally love realistic fiction. This book was definitely sad and dark, but you will not be able to put it down. Once you begin reading this book you will not want to stop reading it. This book is best for older readers. You have to read this book if you don’t mind sad depressing books about a young boy that is recovering from his brothers death.

    I really enjoyed this book but I think it wasn’t that interesting in the middle of the book.

    I liked every single page, but everyone gets to have their own opinion! I think the character development that happens in the middle is important. Kate Davie

    I hope to get the time to read this book. It sound’s and look’s like a really good book.

    Not only does it look and sound like a good book, it IS a good book! It would be worth taking a time management course just so that you would have enough time to read it. Kate Davie

    It was a really well written story about a boy whose brother is killed and about his life afterwards. Also his parents forget about him, well at least his mom does. He has a hard time at school, but he makes new friends and enjous them until the end.

    What do you think makes Daniel change the most in this book? Kate Davie

    I personally thought that this book “After Eli,” was an amazing! The author had very good detail and the author described the characters amazingly! I can see why it is rated 7th grade and up.

    This book is amazing though it was so sad I think the author should make a second book!

    This book doesn’t have a sequel, at least not right now, but Ms. Rupp has written lots of other books you might enjoy. Ask your librarian to help you track them down. Kate Davie

    I think this book is great if you like more grownup books. I couldn’t get my nose out of this book once I started. This book touched my heart. I might vote for it.

    I believe that this book is really more for older kids, and it’s kind of sad, but it might help you deal with a death of someone close to you. I think that the death book thing is a little creepy, but it’s a cool way to deal with a death in your family.
