Bài mẫu chủ đề “Describe an exciting book you have read”

You should say:

  • When you read it

  • What kind of book it is

  • What it is about

  • And explain why you think it is exciting

I don’t consider myself as a bookworm cause I don’t have much time to read books. But I’m going to tell you about one of the greatest novels of all time, which is called Les Misérables, written by Victor Hugo. The novel has been popularized through numerous adaptations for musical films and plays.

 This novel is also well-known in Vietnam because all high school students have to learn about an excerpt from the story. Although I read only a small part of the story, I found it very enchanting and captivating. After that lesson, I came across the book when I was wandering in a bookstore. I quickly decided to make a purchase as I couldn’t wait to finish the whole story.

 The novel elaborates upon the history of France, the architecture and urban design of Paris, politics, moral philosophy, and most importantly, the nature of romance and love. The way that Victor Hugo leads his readers is unpredictable. All the plot twists keep you guessing throughout the whole story. This masterpiece sent shivers down my spine a lot of times. Although the story is not very relevant to modern life, it is still a meaningful moral lesson, which is still relatable to the reader.

 I would highly recommend this book for you if you haven’t read it. It’s outstanding, trust me.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample

1. Do you prefer books or movies?

Well, each has its own merits. Movies, with different types of special effects, are more interesting to watch. But I think that movies actually deteriorate the storyline and plot of the book because movies have to put hundreds of pages into a few hours. So, it is very likely that you’re gonna miss a huge chunk of the storyline.

  • Deteriorate /dɪˈtɪəriəreɪt/ trở nên tồi tệ hơn

    • They had to cope with deteriorating weather conditions.

  • Storyline /ˈstɔːrilaɪn/: cốt truyện

    • Her novels always have the same basic storyline.

2. Is it necessary for parents to read stories for their children?

No, there are other family bonding activities that parents should do. I think it is more beneficial for children if they are allowed to read by themselves. Reading is a skill that can boost children’s imagination, creativity, and analyzing ability. Hence, I think reading on their own can do wonders for their personality development.

  •  family bonding activities: các hoạt động gắn kết gia đình

    • family  /ˈfæm.əl.i/: gia đình

    • bonding /ˈbɒndɪŋ/ liên kết, gắn kết

3. Which group would read more, young people or old people?

Old people, of course. They are the ones who understand the value of books. Meanwhile, most young people have to suffer from hectic schedules at work and at home, leaving very little time for recreational activities like reading.

  • hectic schedules /ˈhektɪk ˈʃedjuːl/ lịch trình dày đặc

    • His incredibly hectic schedule came as no surprise to me since he was a successful businessman.

  • recreational /ˌrekriˈeɪʃənl/: liên quan đến giải trí

    • These areas are set aside for public recreational use.

 4. What's the difference between men's and women's reading habits?

I guess men are more into sports and women love to read about cooking. But I think that’s the old stereotype. Now, reading preferences would largely depend on people’s personalities. Some women love to talk about physical activities and there are men who enjoy culinary arts.

  • Stereotype /ˈsteriətaɪp/: khuôn mẫu

    • He doesn't conform to the usual stereotype of the businessman with a dark suit and briefcase.

  • Culinary /ˈkʌlɪneri/: liên quan đến nấu nướng
