Animal farm = finished

Animal farm

I have finished animal farm.

First off i give this book 2 stars out of 5. " It was okay".

I did not find the book boring and I will recommend it to anybody who loves a good fable with hidden truths but the book annoyed me immensely.(Reason for 2 stars and not 3)

It was good written because I could feel the suffering of all the animals.
The panic when they took Boxer away.
All the commandments slowly changing
but it's just so sad how anybody could be so blind!

I understand the reason we have to read this book is to ready our selves for the near future to have a bull...dust detector and be able to see when a politician is pulling a squealer and when a politician is a caring snowball.

BUT i still don't see any reason why we have to do it 2 years! They can give us another political piece if they are so keen for us to learn about politics

Still I liked boxer he was very sweet and an inspiration too all the other animals.

Squealer was fascinating I wish i could lie as fast as that little pig without blinking an eye.  In our class we call him the propaganda machine.

I hated Benjamin in the end because even though they slaughtered his best friend his comrade. When Squealer told all the animals he was taken to the hospital Benjamin just kept quite!!!

So in a nutshell
2 stars

Recommended to fable  lovers with hidden truths and also persons who are very negative about humans behaviour .

Francois Bloemhof

So ons gaan terug  in tyd...

'n boek gepubliseer in 1996
('n jaar na my geboorte )

Stephan maak klaar met sy "standerd" 9 jaar. Hy en sy beste pel Derek is reg vir die vakansie by die see. Met 'n fiets kompetisie aan die kom is Stephan met sy nuwe fiets(wat hom baie seksueel laat dink) vasberade om te wen. Dan ontmoet hy 'n meisie en soos dit altyd gebeur krap dit mos nou sommer alles behoorlik om. Is die meisie ( Lisa b.t.w) se pa so 'n "poephol" soos sy sê?  Wat is Derek se probleem met haar? Wat doen jy as jy uitvind jou beste vriend is nie wat hy voorgee ? Vind uit in Francois Bloemhof se dramatiese seksuele ;)  romans Slinger-slinger.

'n lekker boek om te lees.  Maklik om in die storie in te gly... en paar goeie skokke wat jou die sin sommer twee keer laat lees.

Maklik om met die karakters te identifiseer. Ek dink seuns kan dit maar lees dit het 'n lekker sprinkel van  Spud (deur John van der Ruit) oor hom. Die boek sal jou ook 'n paar keer hardop laat lag. 

Dialoog :

Dit was vir my nogal snaaks om te sien hoe tieners so min hulle tale gemeng het in die boek maar die vloek woorde bly tog dieselfde. As jy dit lees kan jy agter kom dis in 'n effe vroeër tyd geskryf.

Dit was vir my so KLEIN bietjie voorspelbaar (vir die jong ervare leser wat ek mos nou is)
Ek gee dit 3 sterre uit 5. "Ek het daarvan gehou".

Temas :

Temas waarmee gewerk word is mishandeling , homoseksueel , seks en vals huwelike.

Maar as jy wil weet hoekom die huise se name "Krom Slinger" en "Stout Slinger" is en nog baie ander bloos naampies, lees die boek .

A chapter of my life

My idiotic and genius dogs

So I have a jack Russel and I have bulldog.

You have one guess. Which one is the smart one?

If you have answered :
a) the jack Russel you are correct.

If you have answered :
b)  Bulldog you have obviously never met a bulldog!!!

So its a beautiful cold brink of winters morning. I am shivering in my school clothes and i am on my way to make myself some warm cereal , when the dogs start barking.  Now here is a bit of history.

We have a back left door and a front right door the left door is where the dogs eat. The right door is where they usually sleep. Now as the kind hearted woman my mother is she suggests that they must sleep in the garage for the winter. The garage has a doggy door and is on the left side (the eating side). So now we are training our fairly old dogs to go into the doggy door. So easy as pie right?


To continue where was I ... Oh yes the dogs start barking and we lock the right door so we can teach them to go through the doggy door.

Our Jack Russel Buksie storms in trough the doggy door  immediately and is comfortably in his bed already asleep again and where is the bull dog? At the right side door barking like a maniac so that we can let her in.

Now my mother is on the left side calling Zoey the bulldog.  She whistles she calls she screams nothing works. 

15 minuets later Zoey is still barking at the right side to let her in.

Now it's my turn.

We have finally lured the beast to the left side! She is still barking. I call her and look through the window. I beg and I plead to her just to come in! She gives me this look and I can almost hear her say "Bitch please."

So now I am determined. I call her with all sorts of voices. I start barking . I start calling for a taxi (what can is say i was desperate) and then I start to miaow. This grabs the queens attention and she pops her head slowly through the doggy door but when she sees it's only little old me she flees away for her life.

We are going to open the right door tomorrow


‘It’s me, Anna’

A extremely emotional book. When i dropped the book after reading the last sentence there was a box of tissues next to me. I had to use it a few times to get through this book.

It's a terrible story and even more terrible because its base on a true one. It is a heart rending book and your heart bleeds for the poor girl who had to suffer through so many misery only having a ... there is not a bad enough word... father and a ghost of a mother. She had to grow up when she was only a toddler and had to suffer her entire childhood. Its a very good written book and your sucked in from the first word to the last full stop. (less)

Anna crawls into your heart. It's easy to relate to her having to deal with school trouble and also with an abusing dad at home. 

This book is not for the faint hearts out there. If i must make a comparison i would say it has the same kind of cruelty "the child called it" contains. I have only read a few chapters of a child called it because i am searching for the book!! But from what i have read there are similar themes.

If you like a page-gripping-heart-melting-tissue-clutching book you can give ‘It’s me, Anna’ book a try but i will say it again not for the Faint-hearted.   


the innocent's eerie story

Okay so it starts with a gripping chapter and it lures you in.

Then it gets freaky.

I enjoyed the book. It was the first one I have read of para spirits so I don't know if it was a good book if you are looking  into the aspect of para spirit facts.

I would like to say it was original but I have a feeling the author was writing of myths and legends.

The themes of all the different religions started to annoy me in the middle and the which-God-is-real theme. So that's why I only give this book  3 stars out of 5.

If you enjoy tales off the after life , religions that are mixed up, tense novels and confusing endings you can give this book a try.
