On Thursday we met to talk about A Week in December. The overall verdict was that it was a bit disappointing, and didn’t really deliver, but that this shouldn’t put people off reading other Sebastian Faulks books as some of them are really very good.
The winning book for next time is Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi.
Runners up were:
Engleby – Sebastian Faulks
My Name is Daphne Fairfax – Arthur Smith
Life Ascending – Nick Lane
One Day – David Nicholls
The Sea, The Sea – Iris Murdoch
Seven Types of Ambiguity – Elliot Perlman
Lolita – Vladimir Nabokov
Sophie’s World – Jostein Gaarder
We’ll be meeting on 25th November in Mango Landin as usual.
However we’re still talking about a change in venue, and there is a pub crawl planned on Wed Nov 17th to check out a few other possible places. If you have any suggestions please post them up here – it needs to be fairly quiet on a Thursday night so we can get a table and hear each other talking, and somewhere in Brixton.
We’ll also be planning some sort of Christmas meal at the next meeting, again any suggestions for where/when are welcome.
Hope to see you on the 25th! Message me if you need any further info.
