I love 1982
Black Swan Green got an overwhelming thumbs up from book group – despite Jason’s attempts to swap his Big Trak for an MG, and the slightly overdone 1980’s popular culture references to Findus Crispy Pancakes.
The book for next time is:
A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers
by Xiaolu Guo
Unfortunately it is only available in hardback, but it has been out for a while and Amber has offered to find some review copies – please check the blog for more details!
The runners up were:
For Whom the Bell Tolls, by Ernest Hemmingway
Catch 22 by Joseph Heller
Atonement by Ian McEwan
Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke
Blindness by someonewhosenameicantreadmywriting
next meeting is on TUESDAY 21st August (not the normal Wednesday) back in the delightful Trinity Arms again.
