    The Mermaid of Black Conch: Discussion

    A memorable book. I usually hate magical realism but I think Monique Roffey pulls it off. I set my scepticism to one side and just enjoyed the story, the characters, the setting, the writing. I think she handles the structure very well shifting fairly effortlessly from the 1970’s to 2015. A very talented writer I think, and that’s certainly reflected in all the prizes and plaudits she’s received.

    It’s packed with weighty themes which I can come back to but am keen to know if others enjoyed it …or not…

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.
