Фрагмент из книги:
The Greeks and the Trojans had been at war for ten years.
The exhausted Greek army was camped outside the city of Troy, when the Greek king Odysseus suddenly had a good idea.
I le knew that horses were sacred animals to the Trojans, so he decided to build a huge, hollow wooden horse on wheels. A horse big enough for some of his soldiers to hide inside.
The horse was duly built and some of the soldiers climbed inside. The others set lire to the camp and pretended they were going to sail back home to Greece, defeated. In fact they hid nearby.
My cause for concern.
The thing I’m concerned about at the moment is the influence that video games may have on children.
Let me explain why. I've been reading lots of newspaper articles on the subject, and I also have a personal interest. You see, I have a younger brother, Craig, he's 13 years old, and I'm afraid he’s becoming a video game addict. Just a few years ago, Craig had many interests, he played football, he was learning judo, he went out on his bike with his friends. He was a happy, fun-loving boy. Now he spends hours every day in front of a screen, in a virtual world, playing virtual games, usually violent ones, and he becomes really angry if our parents tell him to stop.
Research shows that today 40% of family homes have computers, so there is plenty of opportunity for very young children to start using them, and by the age of seven many have developed an interest in video games. This is not a problem for most of them. However, by their early teens, a small minority have become addicts, playing for at least 30 hours a week. Dr Mark Griffiths of Nottingham Trent University, an expert in video addiction, finds this figure very worrying. He says that children may become so addicted that they stop doing homework, start playing truant, and even steal money in order to buy the games.
