We had nine like minded members and we all had lots to contribute to the discussion and an interesting morning.
Reviews are as follows:
The Happiest Man on Earth by Eddie Jaku.
Review: An amazing true story of a most remarkable man. Triumph of the human spirit. Compelling story with a message of hope. Excellent read.
One Bright Moon by Andrew Kwong
Review: Slow start. Doctor still practicing in Australia. Well written and inspiring.
Room made of Leaves by Kate Grenville
Review: Interesting. Historical. John Mcarthurs wife's influence with bringing Marino Sheep to Australia.
Queens Tiger by Peter Watt
Not impressed. Far too many characters. Slow and set in 1857. Interesting juxtaposition of male and female roles in medicine.
