Speculative fiction double bill!
We had a lovely meeting on Wednesday, where we were a little bit divided on Mother’s Milk; it seemed that those who had read the preceeding trilogy had a lot more sympathy for Patrick, whereas those who hadn’t found him an irritating 40 something going through a mid life crisis.
Book(s) to read for next time are: Cats Cradle by the late great Kurt Vonnegurt and The Chrysalids by John Wyndham.
And for posterity here is a picture of the cover of the Chrysalids that my parents deemed so offensively irrelevant to the book they tore it off:
Next meeting is in three weeks time on Wednesday the 30th of May in the Hope and Anchor again – hopefully this time we’ll make it into the award winning garden to be over/underwhelmed.
runners up were:
House of the Spirits by Isabella Allende
Catch 22 by Joseph Heller
How to lose friends and alienate people
Altered land by Jules Harvey
and Middlemarch by George Elliott
