Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan

The Organisers invite you to join us for our 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

    Well done to Steve on a thoroughly professional job last night. Next book is on the way - will be interesting to read the inspiration behind the film and TV adaptations I have seen over the years.

    A good discussion led by steve for a book which I thought wasn't as good as it should have been

    Hi ... unable to attend again. However, I loved the book and was rivetted. Was nostalgic for me as was a child of the 70's and can remember the stuff that was going on etc ... Surprising end but perfect!

    Hi this might be a bit late and there might not be anybody who sees this message in time before tonight. If anyone does, is there anyone who is willing to meet me at Newstreet station and escort me to the victoria and back to the station after the event. I've just had a call from Kevin as he's got a bugg and can't make it. If anyone gets this message before six oclock could you please Reply ether to me directly or on the sight. SOrry for the short notice message but Kevin only just realised he could not make it. If nobody is able to meet me at the station could somebody be on the look out for me so that I can find people when I get to the Pub?

    THanks very much.

      On Chesil Beach is one of the most emotionally beautiful novels I've ever read. X

    Just got the book in audio from ITunes so looking forward to getting started on it. Read the sinopses and it sounds very interesting. I am enjoying this group a lot as it is making me read books that I would not ever think of reading.

  • Alex J.

    Really enjoying this so far, a great choice. Looking forward to the discussion.

    However coming from a family of West Brom supporters, I can't condone the Wolverhampton Wanderers reference...!

    Looking forward to the next event. I'll be there for sure.

      From the pulsating stadia of Europe to the parochial paddocks of Gillingham and Morecame. How the slightly mighty have fallen!
