March discussion: The Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer

  • Mar 12, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

WINNER OF THE COSTA BOOK OF THE YEAR 2013 'I'll tell you what happened because it will be a good way to introduce my brother. His name's Simon. I think you're going to like him. I really do. But in a couple of pages he'll be dead. And he was never the same after that.' There are books you can't stop reading, which keep you up all night. There are books which let us into the hidden parts of life and make them vividly real. There are books which, because of the sheer skill with which every word is chosen, linger in your mind for days. The Shock of the Fall is all of these books. The Shock of the Fall is an extraordinary portrait of one man's descent into mental illness. It is a brave and groundbreaking novel from one of the most exciting new voices in fiction.

    Hi, just wanted to see if people were up for going to see The Book Thief at the cinema? It's out at the end of the month, and I know quite a few people have read the book, so thought it might be good. Let me know by commenting here, and will organise it if a few people are up for it! x
