Lists with This Book. Feb 07, Leila Rashid rated it really liked it. The book Jesper is full detailed excitement. It tells an amazing story of what life was like for Jesper, a 16 year old boy in Copenhagen, Denmark, and what he had to go through during mataz war two. Jesper did not agree with what was happening to the world around him. So he decided to form a group called the resistance. At first it started with him and a couple of his close friends that felt the same as Jesper.

Not even his family knew what he was doing. The aim of the group was to sabotage the The book Jesper dee full detailed excitement. The aim of the group was to sabotage the German Caeol in any way possible. They would do things like put sugar, they took bit by bit from their parents, and put it into gas tanks of the Nazis army trucks so they would break down. Just to do anything to make life hard for the Nazis.

The varol started to grow when more people saw the horrible things the Nazis were doing to Jews. When they had enough members in the resistance they were all given code names just in case they were captured, Jesper became Kris. Than they stared going on missions to steal Nazi weapons, they had enough; they met in the middle of the night to have shooting practice.


Jesper tried to keep up with his studies but that was a little hard to do when you mtas fighting for your freedom. School takes a back sit while fight Hitler and the Nazis comes first. But some how he manages to do it. The caorl that Carol Mates made me feel like I was really there and part of the story.

The writing flowed and was easy to understand; a great book that I really enjoyed reading. I would recommend jsper book to any one who would like to expand their knowledge of the Second World War plus the hardship that were faced by Jews and how the resistance influenced. The book left me with a real look and what really happened in Germany in to Jesper will never be the same boy or man that he was before the war.

I would read this book mxtas over again in a second, it was so well written. Plus I know a lot more than I did before this great book.

May 08, Ryka rated it liked it. I hate magas books about war. But I’m making an exception for this one. It’s action jatas, yes. But it’s not that sketchy. I’d say this one’s better than Lisa. A quick story about a terrible time. Unflinching, Matas doesn’t shy away from the unlovlier aspects of our humanity.

This story has happened many times, in many places, is happening on some scale somewhere right now. Maybe if we all read this story, really read it, no one would ever again have to live it. A lot of ethical debate. Extremely powerful and well worth the read. Not for kids under 14, unless you’re ok with torture and graphic violence. May 24, Melissa8f1 rated it liked it.

Jezper is book set in Copenhagen, Denmark during the Holocaust. Jesper and his friend Stefan want to help stop mahas Nazis so they join the Resistance. Stefan must escape Denmark or the Nazis will kill him, so Jesper must work in the Resistance without him.

Along the way to where he is now jail, Jesper helps stop the Nazi revolution.

The best thing about the book was definitley the detail because without the detail it would get confusing.

My least favorite part about the book was when Janicke cagol because she was a good worker for the Resistance and Jesper and Stefan were in love jesped her. The worst thing about the book was the way it switched in dd out of Jesper telling his story and his present life. Also I didn’t like how it ended it wasn’t a good ending. I thought the characters were interesting and suited the book well. I think that the author could have explained each character alittle more because there wasn’t that many.

The characters were very life like, as if they were real. My favorite character was Janicke because she was a strong women caol knew what she wanted, also she was a hard worker when she worked for the Resistance. My least favorie character was Fredrik because he tricked Jesper into telling him he cxrol for the Resistance.

May 23, Alex S rated it really liked it. Carol Matas wrought Jesper witch was an extraordinary book.

Its about a boy named Jesper who was in the resistance against the Nazi’s. It was also vary touching and funny. I also enjoyed the story line behind it.

But there was the fact that the author had told you that he was captured at the beginning. I found it sad and i found i knew he was gonna get caught sooner or later. The plot in this book was amazing, I like how it was all a story. But Carol Matas wrought Jesper witch was an extraordinary book. But the one thing that i hated about it was the end sorry to all people who read this before the book, if you haven’t stop reading. I hated how the jail just got bombed and Fredrick died.

I wanted them to run away with Fredrick to Sweden and live happily ever after instead of going to Anna’s apartment. I did like how Jesper ended up with Lisa in the end but the rest of the ending was terrible.

Jesper by Carol Matas

I loved this book it was fantastic! Just by reading the first page of this book I knew I was going to love it. Carol did an excellent job on describing the scenery, feelings, and sights throughout this entire book. If I were to have judged a book by it’s cover I probably wouldn’t have even picked up this book but, my grandma forced me into reading it.

She wanted to hear about WWII from another countries perspective and in this case it was the perspective of a Danish boy. This boys name was Jesp I loved this book it was fantastic! This boys name was Jesper code name Kris. He was part of the resistance which was against germany. He was only 17 years old when he joined the resistance and was captured multiple times during the book. Carol forshawdows many times during this book and that is what made it great.
