The fall season of English Book Club has been pleasant. We have waded through three novels: The Road (Cormac McCarthy), The Catcher in the Rye (J. D. Salinger) and Started early, took my dog (Kate Atkinson). None of them has been a total winner. Opinions have varied.
Atkinson was praised for beautiful language, Salinger for his vivid portrayal of youth and McCarthy for the athmosphere he had created.
We still have two books to go this year and the programme for the spring season 2014 is in the making! 2014 is the celebration year for Tove Jansson’s 100th birthday so in honor of that we are reading True Deciever from her for our next meeting on November the 27th. Last book of this year will be Haruki Murakami’s After Dark which we will be discussing in our meeting on December the 18th. It’s a shame that Murakami didn’t win the Nobel prize for literature this year.
Welcome to Sello library and we hope to see you there! Book Club Meetings take place on the 2nd floor at 2pm.
