In general the book club group felt ‘Brooklyn’ by Colm Tobin was a disappointment in that it didn’t match up to his usual writing style. However for someone who is new to Colm Tobin, Brooklyn is a light introduction to his work. Let us know your thoughts?

Hi all I hope you enjoyed the last book club meeting and for those of you

who couln’t make it heres a few ideas from the group. We decided to keep the option of two titles per month.

There were also a few suggestions that some poetry might be an option as one of the titles.

Or the possibility of reading a classic over Christmas. Let me know what you think?

I think everybody agreed that they really didn’t like Claire Boylans Collected Stories for those of you that managed to read it from cover to cover.

If you have anymore thoughts on the poetry let me know!

It was the story of twin boys growing up in very rural Wales who with the exception of short separation during the war, lived together all their lives into the 80s and still shared the same bed. The main character tended to over analyse everything and she was a figure of fun for the French characters in the book but she developed as the book went on and ultimately was very likeable.
