As more interest has been shown in reading rather than having a go at Creative Writing it has been decided to form a Book Group instead.

"The Life of Pi" was a challenging read. Opinions were sharply divided and this made for some lively discussion on topics raised in the book such as religions, animals in the wild and in zoos, violence, and human endurance. 
It is a complicated tale filled with factual details, unbelievable situations, and wildly imaginative episodes.  Marked out of 10 for readability, storyline, literary merit, characterisation, the average mark overall was 5 - some enjoyed it a lot more than others!


Meetings held:

Once a month Thursday afternoon

Next meeting:  Thursday 6 June


Venue:  Sally's home
car share

Book for discussion:

Book: "Lucky Jim" by Kingsley Amis

No meeting in July, so "The Hunchback of Notre Dame", by Victor Hugo has been chosen for holiday reading.
