This is the fourth book in the series. If you’ve read ‘Rugby Spirit’, ‘Rugby Warrior’ or ‘Rugby Rebel’ then I’m sure you will love this book as well. But rest assured you do not need to read the others to enjoy Rugby Flyer. Rugby Flyer is a book all about rugby.
In this series, this was the first one I read. If you don’t know the basics of rugby but still want to read it (like me) then I think you would still love it as I did. It’s just that in the match you might not understand what’s happening at all. This book isn’t about the matches but more about rivalry, characters, ghosts and Irish history.
The main character, Eoin Madden, is about thirteen years old and he loves rugby. The story is fast paced. The first page tells you that Eoin is going to Leicester for a rugby camp and if he plays well, he can go to England to play with teams around Europe. The story kicks off from there. You won’t get bored of the story which is good.
Eoin is able to see ghosts and I don’t know what to think about that. It feels really out of place. Also Eoin is the ONLY person that is able to see ghosts and it’s never explained as to how he got this power.
The length of the book is 176 pages long. I found this short. I finished the book in four days but I read it every night and all the time in school. I would recommend this book for anyone who loves rugby and also for those who don’t want to sit down for hours and hours reading to finish it. So in conclusion this book is short but sweet with a few big problems thrown in.
I would give this book a 7/10. Well done Mr Siggins on a very enjoyable book.
