Our first meeting of 2014 was a packed affair – despite the best efforts of the Victoria Line to thwart our plans. I feel slightly bad for the two people who opted to have a quiet drink in the Winston Churchill room of the Effra Social.
Mostly everyone liked the Blind Assassin, including the science fiction bits. Tom’s going to write a review for the blog* so watch this space.
The book for next time is Kafka On The Shore by Haruki Murakami
We’re meeting on Thursday the 20th of February in the front room of the Effra Social (we have a booking – sorry the 27th was taken, so I’ll Skype in)
Runners up included: Ghana Must Go, Disgrace, The Hearing Trumpet, A Tale For The Time Being, Suite Francais, The Art of Travel / Consolations of Philosophy, Stoner and the Buddha in the Attic.
*As you might have noticed we now have a shiny new website for 2014 – hopefully all the links and feeds should still work (sorry if you got a repeat message) – a few members have been asking if they can post reviews so please get in touch if you’re feeling creative.
