Sample Answer of Describe a Story or A Novel that Was Particularly Interesting to You
I am obsessed with reading, and I read anything I come across, especially things that are educative. I have read several novels before. However, I would like to talk about a novel I read recently that I found interesting. The name of the novel is Make hay while the sun rises. The novel was recommended and given to me by a friend, Grace. It was about a young man who worked so hard and finally became rich but spent lavishly. He spends impulsively, and he buys things that are not useful to him. One day, he hung out with his friends, and when he returned home, he had an accident that claimed his hands. After he was discharged home from the hospital, all of his friends were nowhere to be found, and he had no money to spend again because he did not save while he had enough. I found this interesting because of the message the writer passed about the importance of saving for rainy days. I felt so happy when in I finished reading because of the lesson I learnt from the novel.
