Monthly Book Group

Each month I host an open meeting in Woodbridge in Suffolk. We used to meet in the town's bookshop but now gather together in a nearby hall. We usually focus on modern fiction and the discussion regularly attracts around 20 people, men and women, of all ages. Everyone is welcome to join in but please let me know you are planning on coming along. Sign up to the e-newsletter here to receive details. Scroll down to take a look at the titles we've read over the year, and view the archive for past discussions.

We'd all been excited to read our first graphic novel together. Some loved the experience, pausing to contemplate the pictures which provided the nuance and emotion to complement the sparse text. Others found they didn't connect with the story and felt the book disappointed. A great discussion!

So many themes to consider - love, loss and redemption, family, faith, science and immigration, the opioid crisis. Many loved this book for the writing, the subjects covered and the author's voice, but some found the ending disappointing.
