Book club - January 2019

 

Our fifth Book Club was held on Thursday 28th February when we reviewed ’The Tattooist of Auschwitz’ by Heather Morris.  

 

The book received a very mixed reception with some being moved by the story whilst others were left feeling a little let down by the lack of substance.  Overall the book gained an average score of 5.7 with individual scores ranging from 2 to 9 reflecting the diverse views of members.  

 

The next Book Club will take place on Thursday 25th April 2019 at 7pm when we will discuss 'The Hurting' by Lucy van Smit.  If you are interested in joining or would like further information, please contact me or Dee or Alison.

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.
