Hello, fellas.. Is anyone familiar with this book? Tell me: the title, the authors, and what is it about? :)
@masyoza: it’s V for Vendetta, a graphic novel by alan moore.. it’s about a revolutionary named V, who wear Guy Fawkes mask :D@dab_miko: it’s ‘V for Vendetta’, by A. Moore & D. Lloyd, about this guy who fought against a corrupt government in his own ways.
What is V for Vendetta doing in our session today? I’m gonna throw an #EngGame on vocabulary using the quotes I took from the book. :)
Rules: read the quote for each number & choose the synonym for the word in the brackets (tanda kurung). You can use dictionary. :)
“Happiness is a prison, Evey. Happiness is the most (insidious) prison of all.” A. Dangerous. B. Kind. C. Naive.
So what you have to do is guess the synonym for “insidious”. Is it: A. Dangerous, B. Kind, C. Naive? Let the context help you too.
Great job on the example question! Now let the #EngGame begin!
