Rachel – “Anna Karenina” by Leo Tolstoy:

“This nineteenth century classic is about a woman who’s married to a boring politician, then leaves him when she falls in love with an army officer called Vronsky. What she wants is an exciting new life. What happens

in the end, though, is that she’s rejected by society and loses everything. Tragic? Yes, I suppose “Anna Karenina” is a tragic story, but it’s so beautifully told and Tolstoy makes the people seem so real that it’s not at all depressing… just dramatic and moving”.

Jack – ‘The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole” by Sue Townsend:

“What a great book! The main character is a really ordinary boy called Adrian and in the book he describes his day-to-day life as if he was writing a diary. Sounds boring, but believe me, it’s not. Adrian’s descriptions of his family, his problems at school, his anxieties about the world and his love for the beautiful Pandora (who doesn’t love him) are all funny. The writer describes how it feels to be a teenage boy. She’s written other Adrian Mole books (he gets older in each one) and they’re funny too, but for me the first one is definitely the best”.

Cindy – “The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” by Douglas Adams:

“This is my favourite book, it’s funny and original. Normally I hate science-fiction novels because they’re so serious and the people in the always seem completely unreal. Well, in this book there are lots of scientific ideas but the characters are important, too, and what’s even better, they’re incredibly funny. Sometimes I even had to stop reading and close the book because I was laughing so hard. I don’t remember ever doing that with another novel. I liked it so much I just didn’t want it to end!”

E) Project work. Work in groups. Design a newpaper, Be ready present it to your classmates.
