Dan Brown's take on Dante's Inferno is the thriller-writer's most ambitious novel yet – and his worst.
Janelle Aslin's insight:

A negative review!  Yes, you can write a negative review! But what great language is used!  Worth a read if you are writing a review.

Spy Novel Meets Game In Flawed (But Beautiful) New E-Book : NPR | The News for BISP IGCSE | Scoop.it
The Thirty-Nine Steps, John Buchan's 1915 spy thriller, has been reborn as an "interactive novel." Part book, part game, the digital adaptation is innovative and gorgeous, but comes with a set of frustrations.
Janelle Aslin's insight:

A book review!  This one praises but also shows some negatives. I well-developed and balanced review based on several factors, including genre and publication type.

Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan Interview | Interviews | The News for BISP IGCSE | Scoop.it
Broadchurch, who? The Fall is our new TV obsession. Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan’s police officer/serial killer dynamic is the most thrilling thing on screens this summer. We’re hooked.
Janelle Aslin's insight:

Another great example of an interview turned into a feature-style article. Notice the 'reporters' voice as well as how well the quotes (interview) are integrated into the text.

Vacations are where we do some of our most serious thinking, but when it comes to summer reading, we often reach for mindless reads.
Janelle Aslin's insight:

I chose this one because it has more than one book...if you read several of Oliver's books and are interested in doing an 'overview'-style review/article, this may be the one to look at!

You'd think it'd be a little boring for a son to interview his father, since you'd imagine he already knows everything about him. In my case, you would be wrong.
Janelle Aslin's insight:

I thought you would like this because of the title!  Also, it shows you a classic interview style with questions and answers. I'm not sure you have extensive answers to use this style??? But check it out anyway.

Janelle Aslin's insight:

A good example of how to expand your interview with one person into a feature style article.  Notice how it opens...how the interview is incorporated throughout...the slant of the article...and the ending.
