Our first classic! Such a well-studied and famous book, it is still required reading in many schools and has been adapted countless times for screen, stage and radio. It’s only 120 pages long and harks back to 1937, some of us studied it for GCSEs many moons ago yet most of us know nothing about it. Chosen by an English teacher and highly recommended, will we love it or will it be too dated? Will we pick up on the imagery and the deep rooted themes without looking at it as an academic text? Let’s find out!
