December Meetup: "Norwegian Wood" by Haruki Murakami

  • Dec 29, 2013 · 3:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi All,

The results are in, and "Norwegian Wood" has been selected (by a margin of just one vote!) to be our December book. I couldn't be happier, as this is a fantastic book. Even though it's not "Christmassy" (it takes place in Japan) it's definitely a book to curl up with on a cold day...
Publishers Weekly says "...Murakami tells a subtle, charming, profound and very sexy story of young love bound for tragedy."

You can buy it here, used copies from just £2.20: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Norwegian-Wood-Haruki-Murakami-ebook/dp/B005TKD6NY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1385150107&sr=8-1&keywords=norwegian+wood

Hope you all enjoy it, see you there!

    I enjoyed my first meetup, even though there were only 7 of us. I enjoyed the book too.

    So sorry for the short notice; this year really hasn't been kind to my health and I don't want to give you lovely ladies whatever it is that I currently have! See you all in the new year, and wishing you all a wonderful festive season xxx

    Hey everyone, it looks like I won't be able to make this meetup, for the first time in a year! Gutted as I absolutely love this book. Would any of you lovely ladies be willing to become the organiser of this meetup? (basically get the book discussion started?)

    Looking forward to meeting everyone at the December meeting and to reading the book. I think it was a film as well.
