On-line Bookclub – February

Sometimes the Tech tries to confuse you but being a WI member and a little perseverance we were able to enjoy another meeting. Due to COVID we have decided to read books of our own choice which is not only very interesting but also gives other members good ideas to follow up. Tonight we heard about The Prisoner’s Wife by Maggie Brooks, Children of The New Forest by Captain Marryat, No One Listened by Isobel and Alex Kerr, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman, Mum and Dad by Joanna Trollope and Black Eyed Devils by Catrin Collier.
All were given a score of 9 except the last book which was called a ‘Quick Read’
The story was described through the conversation between characters resulting in a feeling of lack of substance.
All the other books were about relationships and described how characters overcome hardship either physical, mental or both.
Catching up with each other is an important part of these meetings and we always manage to have a good laugh. Looking forward to next meeting already.
