Good Kings Bad Kings by Susan Nusbaum (spoilers) | Berg’s Book Club

Welcome to Berg’s Bookclub. I’ve been meaning to write a book review for Good Kings, Bad Kings by Susan Nussbaum for the last month or two. One of the things I hate the most is giving up on a book and not seeing it to the end. However, if I’m honest, the only reason I finished this book was for an essay I was writing for my coursework about the representation […]

I’m Back

Sorry for the long wait, Third Year of uni and coursework took so much time. Which is what you all want to hear, I’m sure. It’s weird, I found the Second Year the hardest in terms of learning. There was so much theory and content to cover. There is in the Third Year too but I don’t know, maybe it’s the jump from the First Year to Second and knowing these […]

Responsible Writing

One of my modules this semester is looking at whether an author is responsible for what they write and to what degree. It has been interesting so far, we have been looking at authors like Oscar Wilde who believe that writing is just beautiful, Faulkner who believed it was personal and universal and Orwell who believed it was political. This week, we looked at Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Look Who’s Back and The […]

My Script before Christmas

I’m really pleased with my script so far. I haven’t got to my target of five pages a day yet. Hopefully, after Christmas, I’ll be able to finish this ninety-page script. Here’s where I am now. I’m currently on page six and have found lots of books on kindle unlimited about homemade candle making but none on the 1800s candle making, so I’ve mixed the information from the book I […]

The Brief History of Candle-Making | Berg’s Book Club

Ok, this is a hard book to review because it’s very short. I mean, it ends on the kindle location, 291. I don’t know what that converts to page-wise but as the average seems to be a few thousand kindle locations for a 300page book, it takes a few minutes to read. I tell you why I read this book, I’m writing a screenplay set in the industrial revolution, the protagonist’s […]

The Arch-Enemy returns.

Yesterday was a busy day for me. I did some coursework, packed my stuff and went to the Christmas Party. My dad and I then travelled to my home in Birmingham. I wake up this morning, confronted by my arch-enemy: Snow. I’m grateful that my dad suggested that I came home last night and not on Saturday, which was the original plan because now I am safe indoors away from my […]
