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.
