It’s great to be young because history reveals an entertaining account and discipline based on our lives as students while at school. When reading author Barry A Whittingham’s ‘Barfield School’ the reference sources and some of the scenes engaged my thoughts, reminding me of the great old days at school as the story unfolds.
‘Headmaster Fowler was almost unanimously disliked by his teaching staff and he was even detested by some.’ Are we familiar with such experience at school? This is my first point of interest in this book because at school many hate the authority for mistakenly taken discipline as punishment.
At chapter 26, page 140, the writer shares an interesting story about Christmas festivities. Like many families, we used occasions to solve family issues and here worried Michael knew about the existing tensions between his father and grandfather, hoping the Christmas family gathering would solve this problem which has given him worries for some time, surprisingly, everything went well as expected.
This incredible book is written in the form which suits both adults and teenagers as the author endeavors to bring to the attention of readers common inevitable family problems and how easily they could be solved, above all the choices we make in our lives and careers after leaving school, in the midst of hatred while under discipline.
‘Barfield School’ is arguably one of the best books I have ever read. It’s not only inspiring but educative on moral grounds. I have received many books but I don’t often post reviews. Bringing this review to the attention of book lovers means ‘Barfield School’ is a perfectly written book I will recommend to readers.
