Scarlet book club: November 2015

By December 1, 2015SCARLET BOOK CLUB

The book under discussion was: Our Man in Havana by Graham Greene and Disclaimer by Renee Knight

This month we had chosen to read two books. One a debut novel published only a few months ago to great acclaim & the second a book considered to be a classic published in 1958. Several members had read both books & found both very enjoyable with only one exception. Disclaimer is a modern and tense thriller drawing the reader in with its mysterious opening but with a dark secret at its heart. Our Man in Havana is a black comedy, definitely of its time, poking fun at the antics of MI6 & the intelligence services.

Members are looking forward to enjoying Christmas lunch at the Scarlet immediately before our next meeting which will be on Thursday 10th December at 2.30pm in the Scarlet library & the book under discussion will be: My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante
