With Rear Window (1954), Alfred Hitchcock proved himself to be one of the best directors of suspense thrillers filled with mystery and humour.

He spends his days watching his neighbours and eventually suspects that one of them killed his wife.

Anthony Burgess’ 1962 book A Clockwork Orange is a dystopian coming of age story that presents a society controlled by a totalitarian government set on making its citizens obedient by essentially turning them into robots. The story is told through the lens of Alex, the story’s fifteen year old antihero and protagonist, who is the leader of an all boy teenage street gang who he calls his “droogs.” The gang has even invented their own language called “Nadsat” as a way of communicating among each other. With his friends, Alex participates in vicious violent and criminal acts from which they derive pleasure. He is eventually captured and experimented on by the government. Though Burgess felt A Clockwork Orange was one of his worst works, I’ll have to disagree and say that a couple of aspects of his novel makes it one of the best books I’ve ever read.

3rd Quarter Outside Reading Project (ORP) My book was Double Helix by Nancy Werlin. The book is mainly about the negative side of biogenetics.

The protein can then be used to create treatments for arthritis or cancer. Dr. Quincy Wyatt is basically the “Albert Einstein” of science in the book and he personally gives Eli the job.

Through scientific research and endeavors, we 've created vaccines for polio, put a man on the moon, and discovered the atomic building blocks of the universe.
