Antiquissimus' Book Clubbing: I, ROBOT

This is a repeat event for once a month to discuss the book of the month.

This month's book is 'I, Robot' by Isaac Asimov (find it here: http://www.takealot.com/books/fiction/i-robot-paperback,3384124)

Here are the guiding principles:

  • No heavy classic lit. If you want to read Tolstoy or Dostoevksy or Dickens, that's awesome. I want to as well. However, do it on your own time. We don't have the time and patience for tomes.
  • No chick lit!! If you're a chick lit fan, you're welcome to start a chick lit sub-group within the group and meetup regularly for discussions. In this, the sub-group I run, we don't do chick lit.
  • No noisy venues. We'll meet at Emmarentia Bot Gardens or Walter Sisulu unless the weather doesn't cooperate, in which case we'll meet at a willing member's home.
  • Attend at your own risk. If you haven't finished the book, don't attend if you don't want to hear spoilers. Not allowed: Requesting before we start that we don't discuss the ending.
  • Let's eat. Bring snacks to each meetup but limit yourself to paying R50-R80 maximum for what you bring. Finger foods and easily snackable items only. Buy a few fruit or some veggies and cut it up or bring croissants or bagels and break them into bite-size pieces.  Bring some biltong or dry wors and nuts or fruit juices and flavoured waters. You get the idea.

    Hey guys. There's not much interest in this event and so many have cancelled. If you're still interested in chatting about the book, I'll be at Vanilla in Rosebank from 4:30pm.

    Sorry for late change, only just remembered that I had replied yes. I'm not going to be in South Africa for this.

    My apologies for bailing on this meetup... I could not predict we would have a new addition in the family and that I'd have to attend a christening on this day.

    I saw the movie and it will be interesting to see how it compares to the book.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
