In the first episode of ‘What’s Your Book?’, Mr Paetzold speaks to you about a novel that had a strong impact upon him as a youth growing up in the Apartheid-era of South Africa.
I don’t know about you, but I often read books that have been recommended from friends, or at year’s end I look at online lists of top books of that year. However, sometimes we choose to read a book for unusual reasons (Mr. Paetzold’s teacher had a pile of books and told the class to choose one and read it).
