For our first online video book group, we had a lively discussion. This rich, multi-layered, clever, thought-provoking read brought many different responses - some hated it, some loved it, but most found there were elements they enjoyed.
Most felt this was a beautifully written book with many interesting themes with the love story between Jan and Eliza appealing and the historical setting fascinating, but the group was divided in who they felt was the most convincing narrator.
A few thought this wasn't as good as the author's previous titles, but most thoroughly enjoyed this entertaining and helpful overview of the recent Brexit years. A lively discussion!
