The night they stormed Eureka-Jackie French

Hi everybody,

Our class novel for this term was The night they stormed Eureka by Jackie French. We read this book because we were learning about the gold rush and the federation of Australia. I thought this book was boring because it described every thing in to much detail. Here is a table of pros and cons about the book:

The night they stormed Eureka
Pros Cons
The characters talk like they would have talked then It might not be historically correct
Based on what we were learning It was over explained and described
Has events that actually happened How did Sam go back in time
It is well explained Boring
It was too focussed on the Puddleham’s instead of the Eureka stockade
