“The Mines Afire” Reading Reflection

TITLE: “The Mines Afire”
AUTHOR : Tommy Carter
Wednesday 22nd of May 2013 Pages: 1-35

This book is about a young boy called Tommy Carter who is a young typical boy living in the West Coast mining community of Dobson in 1896. One fine day Tommy worst fears came true. A huge explosion rips through the mines. This story is a true story that was set in New Zealand and was known as the worst disasters to ever happen. The main character in the story is Tommy Carter.


When I read the part about how the explosion just ripped through the mines I wonder about the miners families and how they would have cop with all of this. I wonder why the author chose to write about this sad disaster that happened so long ago. I think it might be because he probably wanted the readers of this book to know about this tragic and sad disaster.
