One of the most anticipated games of the year finally hit the stores on November 8, 2011. Call of Duty is now the best-selling first person shooter game. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is the 8th in the Call of Duty series and the 3rd in the Modern Warfare series. Modern Warfare 3 starts where Modern Warfare 2 left off. Makarov, the main antagonist, is at large and Russia has invaded America. The US soldiers fight their way through numerous lines of the Russian army. It is a standard military game with realistic weapons.

In the single player mode, the game takes place all over the world. The game play is really interesting and keeps the player intrigued. You get to take control of guns mounted on vehicles and use drones to take out groups of enemies during chases and attacks.

Also, the Special Forces feature was added to MW3, in which the player can either go on a solo mission or with an ally. Special Forces challenge the player with time limits and number of enemies.

Modern Warfare 3 introduces several new, interesting features, starting with the Strike Packages. When a player creates his or her class, they choose one of three packages: Assault, Support and Specialist. Each of these packages gives the players a battlefield assist when racking up consecutive kills. It also introduces new modes like Kill Confirmed, where two teams race to collect dog tags. After each death, a player drops a dog tag. Although players get credit for the kill, their team doesn't score until the dog tag is picked up. They can also collect their team mates' tags to deny a kill.

Modern Warfare 3 is the best there has ever been, with more features, more modes and a ton of new levels.
Book Review: How to Be Good Book Review: How to Be Good

How to be Good is written by Enid Blyton, who is the author of the renowned series Famous Five. One can learn many things from this story. It teaches manners and how to treat our friends, family and neighbours.

The best part of the book is the sentence which says, "The golden rule is to always treat others as you are to be treated yourself." I believe everyone in this world should follow this advice.

I wish the writer had added more illustrations to the book. I enjoy reading this book and I recommend it to the children up to 11 years of age.
