March 2014 Book Club - 'The Book Thief' and 'The Metamorphosis'

Hello Book lovers,

We selected our books for the March 2014 meeting.

"The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak
"The Metamorphosis" by Franz Kafka

If you have time you can read both books, otherwise you can select the book you are most interested in.

The Around Fitzroy & Collingwood Book Club is very informal; there is no set meeting agenda. Over a coffee, beer or wine, we usually have a chat about what everyone thought of the books of the month and see if anyone has read anything else exciting or heard of any great literary events on in Melbourne.

"The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak
It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. By her brother’s graveside, Liesel’s life is changed when she picks up a single object, partially hidden in the snow. It is The Gravedigger’s Handbook, left there by accident, and it is her first act of book thievery.

"The Metamorphosis" by Franz Kafka
One morning, Gregor Samsa wakes up to find himself transformed into a giant insect. His family is understandably perturbed and he finds himself an outsider in his own home

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
