Book Club News

on May 5, 2012

hello everyone!

We met again at lunchtime this week to discuss our latest book – an adaptation of Oliver Twist. It hasn’t been as popular, as it is quite a difficult book to read because it is from a different period in our time. Harriet described it as old fashioned – it is set in Victorian London. When you read a book like this you have to imagine what it was like to live in those times.

Lara wrote a great continuation of Esio Trot! She extended the characters and made her story funny and interesting. Well done Lara!

We are reading The Peppermint Pig next, by Nina Bawden. I remember a television adaptation of it when I was young so I am looking forward to reading it again!

Remember new members are always welcome, and  you are welcome to add your comments to my post – I do read them and try to reply!

Keep reading!

    Hello Rhianna
    I’m afraid it hasnt been as popular as we thought!Only a couple of people had started it and none of us had managed to finish it! We all felt it was a bit slow in parts – it took a long time to introduce the pig of the title! It is set 100 years ago so some of the wording and descriptions are different I shall persevere and read it though! Are you reading a book at the moment? let us know!
