Book club - June 2019

 

Club members enoyed reviewing Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng.

The book is set in a small town in Ohio where two families from very different backgrounds come together, each harbouring their own prejudices and beliefs.  The story is about relationships and how the characters interact with each other, and also react to situations.  

The book was well received and we awarded an overall score of 8.4 out of 10.  

Our next Book Club will take place on Thursday 25th July when we will be discussing The Lie of the Land by Amanda Craig.Why not join us ?

Book club - April 2019


We reviewed The Hurting by Lucy Van Smit.  

 

The overall consensus was that the book was decidedly underwhelming: contrived, over-dramatic and lacking in depth.

 

The overall score of 4.5 out of 10 was a sad reflection of Book Club members' view of the book.

 

Our next Book Club will take place on Thursday 6th June when we will be discussing Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng.All members welcome

Book club - January 2019

 

At our New Year meeting we reviewed A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles.  All agreed the book was beautifully written drawing the reader into the story as it unfolded over a span of 30 years set against the backdrop of Communist Russia.  

 

At the end of the evening, we gave the book a huge thumbs up with an average score of 8.8 out of 10. 

 

The next Book Club will take place on Thursday 28th February at 7pm when we will discuss 'The Tattooist of Auschwitz’ by Heather Morris  If you are interested in joining or would like further information, do please contact me

Book club - November 2018


At our third Book Club meeting we reviewed ’The Keeper of Lost Things’ by Ruth Hogan.  

 

The book was considered by some to be quite lightweight and although a ’nice’ story it seemed to lack substance.  At the end of the evening, we gave the book a very average 5.5 out of 10.

 

The next Book Club will take place on Thursday 10 January (7pm) when we will discuss 'A Gentleman in Moscow' by Amor Towles.  If you are interested in joining or would like further information, please contact Dee or Alison.
