Job by Dan Preston | Reflection

I found the story easy to understand as I came from a small town with similar issues. Having the story based in New Zealand also helped. The main character Job was also understandable as I am sure everyone had someone like that in their class growing up. The way the author described Job’s mother and her man gave me as a reader a sense of just how awful they were and how their was no care for Job. Preston used words to describe Job’s mother such as sinister and dangerous. Because of her Job faced many struggles through the story, and with the addition of the last line “job done” I believe Job did over come the adversity that he faced through the story.
The story had an interesting conflict. The way Preston has used his words to create a suspense and a sense of wonder made for an enjoyable read.
