Scarlet book club: August 2015

By September 15, 2015SCARLET BOOK CLUB

The book under discussion was Life after Life by Kate Atkinson.

This month’s book choice was well received by everyone. This in itself was unusual, as some books we have read have certainly divided opinion. However the author of this wonderfully written, genre-defying book allows no constriction of time, period or setting to interfere with the evolution of this family saga, its multiple characters, and the mingling of daily life & historical fact. The central character Ursula is always real, sometimes almost unbearably so, through all her manifestations. Most book clubbers said they would read more books by Kate Atkinson.

Our next meeting which will be on Thursday 17th September at 2pm in the library at the Scarlet when the book under discussion will be The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.
