Book Group listing
Book Group meetings in 2018
Each month we have an open meeting in the bookshop read more about it here. We usually focus on modern fiction and the discussion regularly attracts around 20 people, men and women, of all ages.
Almost everyone agreed this was 'a good book'. Through humour, great characterisation and a very engaging central character, the author tackled difficult political and cultural issues. The reader came away with a heart for Nigerian people and a better perspective on life in that country.
Warm, charming characters in a slice of life from the 1980s. Humour and tragedy, told from the perspective of a nine-year-old boy. Most loved this book though a couple of people thought it too slow and couldn't engage with the narrator.
