Book Group listing
Book Group meetings in 2020
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.
For our first online video book group, we had a lively discussion. This rich, multi-layered, clever, thought-provoking read brought many different responses - some hated it, some loved it, but most found there were elements they enjoyed.
Most felt this was a beautifully written book with many interesting themes with the love story between Jan and Eliza appealing and the historical setting fascinating, but the group was divided in who they felt was the most convincing narrator.
A few thought this wasn't as good as the author's previous titles, but most thoroughly enjoyed this entertaining and helpful overview of the recent Brexit years. A lively discussion!
There was a unanimous approval of this quirky, unusual, often amusing and subversive tale. Though some thought the ending disappointing.
