Thomas Harris, (1988),The Silence of the Lambs, St. Martin’s Press
By Lorena Davis Mosquera, 2 ESO B
I really enjoyed this book and it is one of my favourites by far. It was interesting throughout the whole story and fast pace so it was easy and pleasant for me to read. Although the story tells of a crime, it isn’t too gruesome and doesn’t go into unnecessary details. The story is well written and I really liked it, which was unexpected because I don’t like horror books. The main reason I liked this book so much was because it ‘awoke’ my emotions. I felt fear when I read about the incident with Buffalo Bill, I laughed at some of Hannibal Lecter’s witty remarks and I cried when I read the story of the lamb. I just thought it was an outstanding book.
To conclude, although I did really like this book, I have to recommend it to people who are fifteen or older because it had some intense swearing and violence was involved. I definitely recommend this book; it has a great plot, fantastic characters with intriguing personalities and entertaining dialogue. It is a remarkable read for anyone who likes crime stories or fancies a bit of mystery.

J.R.R. Tolkien (1954) The Fellowship of the Ring, Del Rey mass market edition 2012
I recommend this book and think it should be read, because the way the story is written is ingenious and although the language is a bit hard it is written in a way that anyone at least in their teens can get the basic meanings
By Andrew Hutchison, 2ºESO B
This volume, one of the three books in the trilogy, tells the story of how four young Hobbits go (along with two men, a dwarf, an Elven prince and a wizard) out on a quest to destroy the one ring. In this book, the fellowship of the ring is divided, one group going to war against the enemies of good, while another smaller group, composed of the two very brave Hobbits Frodo and Sam go to Mount Doom (a volcano in the land of the Orcs where the ring was forged) to hurl the ring into the lava, utterly destroying it and wiping evil from the face of the middle earth.
My favourite part was when the fellowship encountered the Mines of Moria, as there was a lot of action as well as humor.

Syria is in the middle of a civil war. It is in a terrible state; bombs going off every few hours, sounds of machine guns and many cries of pain. Our class, ESO 1B, have come up with the idea of setting up a fund raising sale, to help the innocent people survive the war.
The British Red Cross Charity is probably our best option. They support the Syrians by sending volunteers willing to help with all the equipment and resources needed such as food, medical equipment, clothes and many more vital resources. This sale will have cakes, cookies and cupcakes, which will raise a lot of money. The bake sale will take place at 11:30 am, 2:35 pm and 3:30 pm, respectively.
These innocent people do not deserve to be in the middle of this disaster. It should end. Sadly, we can't end it, but we can help. This fund raising sale will hopefully save a lot of lives.
Thank you for your time and we look forward to seeing you at the bake sale.

London is a jungle,
A Metaphorical Poem
by Alex Constantin 1 ESO
London is a jungle,
People are always busy
Life is not easy!
People are ants,
The tube is a worm
digging its way underground
that takes the ants around.
I love London!

Eagles are bombers.
They drop live charges
With intent to kill.
They prey on slow, strong tanks
And agile jeeps.
They are precise
Weapons of destruction
And dominate the battlefield
Devastating all in their path,
To eat a splattered tortoise or a
Dismembered rabbit, yum yum.
