Discussion in 'books, films, TV, radio & writing' started by Agent Sparrow, Jan 31, 2015.
I actually found the last third the most engaging!
Don't let me put you off. We've already had a discussion about premature opinion sharing. I just couldn't resist .
It has picked up again I must admit (just finishing) .
There was a good third?
I actually did enjoy his tales of mountain folk's wild and proud behaviour. He obviously loves his family very much, despite their obvious flaws, and I found that quite warming. A shorter book or essay on just this stuff would have been much more palatable for me.
Is anyone desperate to host this Thursday? I can if needed.
Me! Anna is busily reading the book, and is almost certain to join us.
Top notch bookgroup - company, food, book discussion, attendance - had a great evening, thanks all!
Next bookgroup will be Sat 7 April, the book is Reservoir 13 by Jon McGregor.
The book sure is compelling! Was worried I might not be able to read it before Saturday, but am 200 pages in having started yesterday!
It's prompted me to re-read Middlemarch.
At the moment it reminds me a bit of The Lovely Bones.
Next book is The City and the City by China Miéville. Also currently being shown as a BBC dramatisation.
Next book group will be on Thursday 24th May, I think venue tbc.
Next up is The Good Terrorist by Doris Lessing.
Thursday 12th July.
Next bookgroup is 8th Aug, chez moi.
The book is Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie
Thank you for the update, looking forward to it.
