Warminster

Bookworms II

In November we discussed This Must Be The Place by Maggie O’Farrell. This was not an easy read because the chapters, though clearly marked, did not follow consecutively. The narrative, concerning two central characters, was told by a large cast of others, adding to the complexity. Some members felt this reflected real life but others totally disagreed, making for a lively discussion. In November we chose Victoria Hislop’s Sunrise, set in Cyprus during the civil war, which led to partition. We agreed that it was a vivid account of the island’s recent history, making us feel as if we were watching it happen, but that the characters portrayed were less convincing. With so many distractions in December we chose to wait until January for our next choice and are currently reading Madeline Miller’s Circe
