    Discussion of Cloudstreet

    Oh dear, what can I say? I really didn’t take to Cloudstreet and have no idea why it was picked as one of the books of the decade. Perhaps you need to be an Australian to really get it. I found it very monotonous and I’m afraid I didn’t get very far at all - perhaps only a third of the way through - and somebody else will have to tell me whether or not it improves over time. I just felt the pace was so slow, the characters didn’t really engage me, the story took too long to develop. Seems some people really love it, but not me!

Book club

This group is for people who like to read a book and discuss it with others. We will choose a book each month from titles suggested by members of the group. We will then return for an on-line discussion at a pre selected date which will be 6 weeks later. Important that we suggest books which are readily available, not too expensive, and not too long.

** Please note that this is a book discussion group. Business posts will not be accepted and members posting these will be removed from the group. SO PLEASE NO ADVERTISING.
