January Book Discussion - The Underground Man by Mick Jackson

The Organisers invite you to join us for our December Book Discussion Evening.

Share views and gain new insights into this months book.

....and to vote for our next book from a list of suggestions from our members.

Drinks and socialising in The Bar from 7.30pm for a 8pm Start in the function room upstairs.

If, as a new member, you need help finding us and becoming acquainted with the group please email the organiser.

 

*********************************************************

If anyone has a suggestion for our next book please email the details to the message board at... [masked]  Please include a review of the book with your message or better still, tell us in your own words why we should be reading it. Ideally suggestions should be available in paperback (for affordability) not too long or too short [masked] pages seems to work best) and of a decent standard of literature (make your own judgment about that one).


Also please give some thought as to how well the book lends itself to  lively discussion and debate on the night - Such things as a complexity of plot, a variety of themes, philosophical or social issues, well developed characters and perhaps a few unexpected twists and turns.

If you do recommend a book we will ask you to briefly (3 minutes maximum) tell us about the book at the meetup before we put each title to the vote so please come prepared for that. You do not have to chair

    If the Duke had been online, he could still have got a plug-in after ... (sorry;))

    The Duke needed that Trepan like a hole in the head.

    Is it too cheesy to suggest he needed a 'trepanning' like a hole in the head??!! Good meeting last night. Thanks everyone xx

    Well done Carol, even without notes, it was good session. I am now afraid of the Berryman... Holly bushes will never be the same again.

    The Duke needed (insert funny line here) like a hole in the head (prize for the best entry)

      The duke needed the Berryman like a hole in the head or the Duke need a towel like a whole in the head. How about them?

    Agree- well done Carol (and children for eliminating notes)-great night!
    Tony 'a good dose of introspection'?

    Thanks for chairing Carol. An enjoyable evening with some lively discussion. Glad i persisted with the book because i thought it was worth it!

    Sorry I had to leave early but it was a great first meeting for me. Even though I hated the book and didn't finish it you comments were all so interesting that I am going to finish it now- if not for the gory ending. What a diverse range of comments and opinions! very impressed by the insight. Can't wait to read the next one.

    Hi all. My evil horrible scumbag bus didn't turn up so I won't make it tonight. I'm fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuming! I gave up after waiting fifty minutes. I'm very sorry to be missing this evening as I was really looking forward to meeting you all and discussing the book. Hopefully next month will be better. Perhaps I could build my own underground tunnel network to get me from Weoley Castle to town in a wheelbarrow - it'd definitely be more reliable than the X64. I hope you all have a great evening and I'm looking forward to finding out what the next book will be. Toodle-oo!

    Hi all - just come across this club and would love to join. Don't think I can read the book for next Tuesday - but would like to come to the February meeting. Do you decide the books on the night?

    January 4, 2013

    • Kevin P.

      You'll be very welcome, Geraldine - even if you haven't had chance to read the book. We choose our next month's read as first item at the meeting. You can nominate a book if you wish and then we all vote on the books that have been nominated. Kevin.

    Eva, yes that's fine - see you on the 8th. Tony

    Hey. Good choice, I've got a copy of this, but I haven't read it!
    Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to all at Birmingham Book Club. See you in January!
