Book Group - Murder Mystery 3

SHOREHAM & SOUTHWICK U3A HAS 4 MURDER MYSTERY BOOK GROUPS

BOOK GROUP MURDER

This is a themed book group - for the time being the theme is murder mysteries, but this may change over time.

The group aims to be wide ranging in its choice of novels both in date of publication and country of origin. The group meets in members home on the third Tuesday of the month from 11.30am to 1.30pm.

The dates for forthcoming meetings are as follows

This group is not running at present.

What sort of things do we discuss?

Many of the things that any books group would discuss, but perhaps with a few additions. For example:

• First and foremost, did we enjoy reading the book!

• Was the book well written?

• Were the characters believable?

• Did we get a sense of place, be it another town, another country or a specific workplace or environment?

• Did it have a good plot and have something different to offer?

• Did we want to keep turning the page, or not?

• Were there ‘twists in the tale’?

• Was the book the right length with every page earning its keep - or was it padded?

• Was the perpetrator of the crime too obvious from too early in the book?

• Was any violence gratuitous, or any police procedure unnecessary to the plot - just for the sake of it?

• Were we provided with believable evidence of the perpetrators means, motive and opportunity?

• If by an established author, was there evidence of them taking their readers for granted – trading on their reputation and not producing ‘the goods’?

• Would we read another book by the same author?
