Bookworms II

In April, still waiting for Spring, we explored Strange Shores by the Icelandic author Arnaldur Indridason, which we all thoroughly enjoyed and would like to read other books of his, though the Library does not hold many copies. We then chose Munich by Robert Harris. We have been impressed by other books of his and were not disappointed by this one as it changed our understanding of the negotiations with Hitler and the famous “Peace in our time” speech that followed. Last month we read Helen Dunmore’s Birdcage Walk, set in Bristol in the late 18th century. It was a many-layered story of a family at the time of the French Revolution, its repercussions in England and with a mystery at the heart of the narrative.

Our group is currently full, but I’m happy to hold a waiting list if need be. Ruth Moore
