Re: Book Club

Oooh this is a great idea! I have recently read The Book Thief, When God Was a Rabbit, Buddha Da, and Horse Boy. All very different but enjoyable all the same.

This is a risk. I also have a certain taste that the next person might not necessarily enjoy!

Re: Book Club

Yes, I realise that.....such a shame really. Great idea though. Give it another month or two and try again, perhaps?

Definitely will do so! The best part about reading books is dissecting them and hearing a different perspective!

Re: Book Club

Oh absolutely! And while I get Zuleika's point about not being interested in a book that wasn't to her taste....to me that's the whole idea. Trying something new that you wouldn't normally go for. I have found many books this way and they have (mostly) been good reads. Some I just couldn't get into because of the writing style (The Room, being one example) but I'm looking forward to you pitching the idea again!
