We were a gathering of eight like minded members who enjoy reading and the pleasures that flow from this (sometimes) addiction.
The titles discussed and critiqued were as follows:-
HEX by Rebecca Dinerstein Knight, Only had one starter for this book but found it hard going.
All Our Shimmering Skies By Trent Dalton: Thoughts on this title vary from: Set in Darwin and could visualize the areas.
Heavy going.
Too much description.
Very confronting, Really enjoyed.
A Streetcar named Desire Tennessee Williams.
Expert in projecting situations.
No empathy with any characters and couldn't relate to any.
Thoroughly enjoy this book which was written in 1957 and probably more relevant today due to portrayal of domestic violence.
A gritty window through which we watch and feel we are in the space. Recommended.
The Glass Menagerie. Tennessee Williams
Comments ranged from, Enjoyed to A waste of time.
12 Angry Men by Reginald Rose.
Well written with interesting description and informative.
Enjoyed the book but found having the jurors being identified by numbers, 1 through to 12 not as satisfying as seeing the film and jurors having a visual identity. This book was enjoy by all who managed to read it.

Any title by John Le Carre
