Band 9.0 Sample Answer.

I would like to talk about my favorite classic novel called The Godfather, which is written by a well-known Italian author, Mario Puzo.

I came across this novel when I was trying to find a dictionary at a bookstore.

It was published in hard-cover version and there was a colourful illustration on the front which caught my eye.

At first, although I was not much impressed by the novel’s preview, I still bought it and started to read the story right after getting home.

Surprisingly, the more I read “The Godfather”, the more it appealed to me.

This novel told the story of an Italian imaginary character named Vito Corleone, who was a mafia boss in America after World War I.

What attracted me in this story was the way the author described Vito’s tricks to survive in a chaotic society.

Thanks to this novel, I learned a lot about the course of American history in that lawless period.

After finishing this book, I read some more novels by Mario Puzo and they were all fascinating.

I realize that reading books is a good way to gain knowledge; therefore, everyone should get into the habit of reading.
