"Anymale Farm"


I read “Animal Farm” by George Orwell online during winter holiday. It was my homework but I would do it even if it wasn’t because last year I read it in polish and as in my opinion it’s better to read books, poems and so on in their original language because there may be things hard to translate or completely untranslatable, I would reach out for it in english then. But I thought thoughts like “big name = hard sentences abstract for me”. The year after I tried and it turned out to be not as difficult.

The Body by Stephen King


"The body" is a novella written by Stephen King. I decided to read this story because I have read a few books by this author before and I like his way of telling stories and his style. Also "The Body" is a story everyone can relate to on some level so I chose it. 




In 1960, America a young boy- Gordie Lanchance and his three friends accidentaly hear about a boy in a  forest. Or more precisely about his body. He was killed by a train and now the police is trying to find his corpse. But the boys - always ready for an adventure- decide to be faster than others and then their journey begins. The adolecents get a chance to dicover  cruelty of the world but also its wonders.



The characters of this book seem to very real. It's almost like reading about an event in the past that truly happened with real charactes etc. The plotline is led at perfect pace, there are fragments when you get to know more about the boys and their families or you get a chance to stop and think about what the writer wants to tell you but there are fragments where you go with the flow of events and wait in fraught to see how the plot will solve, too. The action many times was so gripping indeed you couldn't wait to keep reading.


I would recommend this book to anyone who is fond of reading about adventoures or mysteries.As I said the story is highly relatable because it tells first of all about friendship. The language was very accessible as well but easily you can find there some new interesting words too. In conclusion I think that the novella by Stephen King is worth attention even if you are not really intersted in his bibliography.

"Anna Karenina" - Leo Tolstoy

 Some time ago I read a book called "Anna Karenina" written by Leo Tolstoy. I chose it because it is a very popular book and I heard a lot of different oppinions about it.
This book is called the greatest novel of all the times. 







The book is set in the 1870s, in Russia and some part in the Germany and Italy. The main characters are Anna Karenina and her lover Alexei Vronsky. The main thread is about forbidden felling between Alexei and Anna. Anna is married and had and affair with young soldier, Alexei.

"Anna Karenina" is really hard to read for someone who don't like things like love affairs or marriage problems, etc. The plot is based on too much stories about love problems or relationship problems and that is monotonous and quite boring. The good thing is that Leo Tolstoy show us a lot of divisions and customs of Russia society in 1877s. Characters show many different social layer in Russia and that is on of the most interesting thing in this book.

Everybody should read this book, just to see if maybe that book can be one of the good books in their collection. Maybe I wouldn't read it again, but someone can back to this book often.

"The Secret Adversary"

I read a book called "The Secret Adversary" by Agatha Christie. I decided to read this book because I love detective stories. For the first time I read Agatha Christie's book when I was in middle school. I had to read book about Hercules Poirot and then I wanted to read more books like this one. 



This book is set in the United Kingdom in 20th century. It is about two detectives, Tommy and Tuppence, who are looking for Jane Finn. She has documents which are very important to safety United Kingdom. Tommy and Tuppence have many dangerous adventures. 


In my opinion this book is very interesting. I really like United Kingdom and this book is set in there so this was very nice for me. The book's plot is complicated but interesting.


I recommend this book everyone who love detective stories. If you like books like this you should read this book. 

'Love Actually' by Richard Curtis


‘Love Actually’ is written by Richard Curtis. I decided to read it two months ago and I really warmed to plot. What convince me to this book is the fact, that Curtis has spoken negatively about the editing process for the film, which he labeled as a "catastrophe" and "The only nightmare scenario that I’ve been caught in". So I decided to check differences between a plot of book and film.

"Made In Dogenham" by Sally Hawkins, Bob Hoskins, Miranda Richardson


Two months ago, I borrowed a book by Sally Hawkins, Bob Hoskins, Miranda Richardson. I borowed it because I am interested in history of this book. The book was bosed on events from Ford factory in Dogenham. This event took place in 1968  in London.
