Scarlet book club: May 2014

This month’s book club on 22nd May discussed Wise Children by Angela Carter.

Although there were fewer members at this month’s meeting we found plenty to say about Wise Children by Angela Carter. Whilst all agreed that the book was well written, fast paced and rich in content, some felt unable to engage emotionally with the characters, most probably because of the magic realism aspect that the book encompasses. It was felt that this book is worthy of study but, at the same time, most would be cautious about who they recommended to read it.

The next meeting will be on Thursday 19th June at 2pm in the library at Scarlet, when the book under discussion will be a book of short stories Not the End of the World by Kate Atkinson.

New members are always welcome – if you wish to know more, please email Judith at:
