Good group last night at the book group where we pondered The Reader by Bernhard Schlink. Most had read it and some had seen the movie so it was interesting to compare the two. We all enjoyed it and it certainly provoked a long discussion. And that old theme of atonement made several appearances.
Our next book will be Can’t Wait to get to Heaven by Fannie Flagg on Monday 20 April. I got it for Christmas and just loved it. (The author also wrote Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe.) It is warm and funny and such a feel-good book. Some light relief after a few ‘heavies’.
