The Dublin Book Club Meetup Group Monthly Meetup

Here are the 2 book choices for April. And remember, you don't have to read both books!
Enjoy, and see you on the 16th of April!
Note: If these books are difficult to find in bookshops, try online (e.g.: Amazon.co.uk, kennys.ie)
Also, you can check out the book list online via the 'Files' section from 'More' on the menubar.

1. Nemesis -  Jo Nesbo
2. The Sisters Brothers -  Patrick DeWitt

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Nemesis - Jo Nesbo (March'11, Mary)

A superb novel. Intricate, truly gripping plot...elegant simplicity. Reads incredibly nimbly ... This tale of revenge - with the US bombing of Afghanistan pounding in the grim background - has twists galore, and enough humanity in it to keep it grounded. Nemesis is a crime novel by Norwegian writer Jo Nesbø, the fourth in the Harry Hole series. This time there's a bank robbery in Oslo, but Harry also has to deal with two females that are important to him, while trying to stay away from the alcohol that he loves so dearly.

2. The Sisters Brothers - Patrick DeWitt (Jun'12, Des Martin)

The Sisters Brothers (2011) is a historical novel by Canadian-born author Patrick deWitt. The darkly comic, Western-inspired story takes place in Oregon and California in 1851. The central characters are Eli Sisters (the narrator) and his brother Charlie Sisters, who are both murderers for hire. The series of adventures depicted resemble the narrative form of a picaresque novel, and the chapters are brief and occasionally disjointed, sometimes reading like a film treatment. The Sisters brothers are hired by the Commodore to travel from Oregon City to San Francisco to murder Hermann Warm, a prospector, who is described to them as a "thief." However, when they ultimately encounter Warm, they discover an entirely different situation.

    Hi. Looking forward to tomorrow! With the year that's in it, perhaps we could read Strumpet City, by Pkunkett, at some stage? It would be interesting to refresh the Irish among us of what our grandparents and great grandparents lived through and would give our non-Irish members a chance to become familiar with some of our recent (relatively) Dublin history.

      Mary, we had Strumpet City as one of our books last year!

    Hi Seamus,
    I'll probably be quite late, but hope to make it for a while. I actually managed to finish one of the books this month, but I have a feeling it wasn't the better one!!!

    I've actually read both of these already - am looking forward to chatting about them, but a little disappointed I don't have a lengthy reading list to look forward to :)

    March 20, 2013

    • Seamus

      Denise, the current book list can be viewed via the Files section from the More option on the menubar.
      Also, the first book for the May meetup has been chosen. (see below, or check out the May meetup listing).

      March 20, 2013

  • Seamus

    The first book for May has also been chosen:
    Chronicle of a Death Foretold - Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

    RSVPs for May will open around the time of the April meetup. After the April meetup the two books chosen will be the second book for May and the first book for June.
    (I think there was a typo in the message I sent out).
