Book 82: Animal Farm by George Orwell

Animal FarmAnimal Farm by George Orwell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Animals revolt and take over from their human oppressors with dream of a better life. However just like in Heathers the movie with Christian Slater (if you're my age you will get this reference) if you cut off one monsters head it just grows another one. The pigs take over and can not help themselves but to exploit the other animals for their own gain. When reading this book I got shivers up and down my spine as it mirrored the behaviour of us (humans that is).

Hi Everyone (or anyone),

I'm going to start reviewing on goodreads (it's like the last Sunday bookclub but with everyone in the world). I'll use goodreads to blog across to this blog though for those of you that haven't embraced the goodness of goodreads.

Much Love

Book 17: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Jane EyreJane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Jane Eyre is tough... she has guts and stands up to people who bully her right from when she's little. She's smart, talented and full of character and when she could have become crushed by the saddness of her life she instead finds strength and purpose.

I really enjoyed it. I liked Jane, this is an easy read full of baddies you can hiss at and a heroine that you can feel connected to.
