To me you're a Captain, but to a Captain, you're no Captain!

I liked pretty much everything he did, but I thought his short stories were best.

This was my favourite

You can check out any time you like but you can never leave!

Read Day of Triffs, Animal Farm and Lord of Flies at my school back in the mid 80's - see nothing has changed!  ;)

American Psycho?  8)

I'd recommend this - if you can get hold of it - it's got plenty of old fashioned Englishness to it, plenty of pictures and it's about skool too! Coo, er, gosh sir, look at your egg, isn't it runny?




I have the full set of 'Nigel Molesworth' they are great.

Seriously,

As previously mentioned. Lord of the Flies, Animal Farm, Goodbye Mr Chips. Dickens Short Christmas Stories,
Of Mice and Men is excellent but by an American
How old is your son? - Friday Night,Saturday morning', Love on the Dole, A kind of loving.
Also Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christiie
Any 'william' book by Richmal Cromptom - never intended for children.

The Other Hand- Chris Cleave

I'm currently doing this for my higher English and although it's not really my kind of book, it is well written and a good book to study.

Also try Stalin's Ghost by Martin Cruz Smith.
If we're so much the same like I always hear,
Why such different fortunes and fates?
Some of us live in a cloud of fear,
Some live behind iron gates

The Man In The High Castle or Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said. I endorse the recommendations for 1984 and Animal Farm.
