We are glad to announce that English Book Club continues with a new season from January to May!
We kick off the season with an interesting novel, Solar by Ian McEwan. The book consist of themes ranging from climate change to marital problems.
Just this week we met one of the regular EBC members who is currently reading the book and he mentioned that the book is full of science terms. His guess was that not everybody will understand nor like the fact. We will find out on the 23rd of January at 2 pm in the Cultural space (2nd floor) when we meet and discuss the book. There may be some coffee and cake, too… We’ll see. Hope to see you there!
Ian McEwan is a British novelist who has been publishing books since 1975. Solar was published in 2010 and was awarded the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for comic fiction. So even though the themes and subjects in the story may be serious and big, it has comical sides to it, too.

In our last meeting we discussed Kiran Desai’s Inheritance of loss. We talked a lot about India, the cast system and the society there, human rights issues and bar crawling. Yes, our conversation flows to all sorts of directions, we don’t take ourselves too seriously.
