My choice was hatched, because I had to choise out of 3 books. Hatched was the most intresting book. And it did not seemd a very hard or a boring book.
3. Zijn je verwachtingen uitgekomen?
My expectations were not very high, and I didn´t like the book at all.
So they have come out, but at the same time they did! The book was prodictuble and not very exithing.
