TY Book Recommendations 13

IV formers have now started writing their Extended Essays, due in on Thursday 20th November. Robin Fitzpatrick has read Me Cheeta, by James Lever (recommended in the summer here), and writes:-

This is a mock-autobiography based on a chimpanzee who co-starred with Tarzan (Johnny Weissmuller) during Hollywood's Golden Age. It gives a real inside look at Hollywood, particularly during the Great Depression. James Lever writes in a really wacky way. The book takes you back to when the world was a very different place. But it also makes you realise that the world of celebrity hasn't changed. I am finding the book thoroughly enjoyable.
