    The Guide: Discussion

    I did enjoy this even though I found it a little bit densely written, if you know what I mean. I found Raju an interesting, complex character and found his gradual unravelling quite believable.

    It didn’t seem that dated and I thought the writing was generally accessible.

    It said in the intro that Naipaul, Narayan’s harshest critic, said that it did not prepare me ‘for the distress of India’. I agree but wondered whether every Indian novel has to portray squalor and misery.

    How did others get on.?

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.
