The Year 12 Book ‘n’ Brew reading club met last week to discuss their first book choice, ‘1984’ by George Orwell.
‘1984’ is a dystopian novel set in an alternative London run by an all-powerful dictatorship led by the mysterious Big Brother. Whilst not an easy read, the students engaged in a wide-ranging discussion about the plot, characters and the wider meaning of the novel, making incisive and thoughtful comments.
The next Book ‘n’ Brew meeting will take place on Tuesday 7th February, when we will discuss ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ by Oscar Wilde. If any Year 12 students would like to join the club, see Mr McKay in T5.
