Next Meeting: 23rd April, The Queen's Head

The book to read for next time is The Bluest Eye, by Toni Morrison.

We will be meeting at 7:30pm in the Queen's Head in Frodsham, and we hope to see you all there!

March's meeting last Sunday, however, was spectacularly hosted by the wonderful Suzie, who provided a positive bounty of buffet food.

The challenge had been to listen to an audiobook and an array of different titles had been chosen, from different sources; itunes, audible, cds and the library all featured, and the books ranged from I am Pilgrim, by Terry Hayes, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, by Neil Gaiman, There's Something I'm Dying to Tell You, by Lynda Bellingham and The Rector's wife, by Joanna Trollope.

It seemed as though everyone enjoyed listening to the audiobooks, and the books chosen all seemed to have been enjoyed, and all seemed very interesting!

I am Pilgrim sees a forensic pathologist caught up in a serial murder case where someone is using his previous books as inspiration. Sadly, only the first half is available on itunes, so the book was purchased for the second half!

The Ocean at the End of the Lane is a fantasy novel, read by the author and written in first person point of view about a series of events when the narrator was a seven year old boy.

There's Something I'm Dying to Tell You is Lynda Bellingham's autobiography, which she wrote about her battle with cancer. The narrator, Sue Holderness was chosen by Lynda Bellingham to read the book.

The Rector's Wife sees a long suffering rector's wife take a part time job in a supermarket in order to send her daughter to a different school, where she won't be bullied.
