Report on Book Group Meeting - Meeting, Monday, 8 October 2018

Our group met on Monday evening to discuss “The Keeper of Lost Things” which is the first novel written by Ruth Hogan. We had an interesting debate with many diverse opinions. Comments ranged from “the worst book I have ever read” and “boring” to “wonderful”, “clever plot, loved it” and “just as appealing second time round”. Most of us loved the Down’s Syndrome young woman, Sunshine, who was very much in tune with everyone’s feelings, spoken or unspoken, and who had an often quirky way of expressing herself; she always described herself as being “dancing drome”. The verdict of the majority was that this was a super first novel which left us feeling good!
Scores out of 10 ranged between 2 and 10 with an average score of 7.
We shall meet on Monday 12th November to discuss “The Light Between Oceans” by M.L Stedman.
