A work colleague told me about it. Really glad he did!
I'm an avid reader of many years. I enjoy the traditionally geeky genres of Science Fiction/Fantasy/Speculative Fiction but have an especial love of the Post-Apocalyptic sub-genre.
I've been a member of the group for more than two years and I am yet to review it! For shame! I absolutely love this group and I look forward to the meeting every month. I thought I knew the post-apocalyptic and dystopian fiction genre but this group has introduced me to such a wide range of books. Some of them have been gems and some of them have been awful but the one constant throughout is the amazing discussions they generate. There are lots of very intelligent people in this group who can offer ideas and perspectives on a book that I hadn't considered. Every month I am both surprised and pleased to see new people. Some stay for a while and some don't, but the group as a whole is very friendly and welcoming to all who come. All credit to Leila for doing an excellent job of not only organising everything well in advance, but also maintaining enthusiasm and good humour after all this time.
