At the end of the year we again headed out for a meal to discuss the year’s readings. This time to Bouterey’s Restaurant. So engrossed were we in our literary discussions we did not notice the restauranteur performing the heimlich manoeuvre on a fellow diner and in fact did not realise anything was amiss until the ambulance arrived!
Again we discussed our favourite scenes, literary devices, characters and fictional love interests. Though we all agreed Lady Chatterley and Oliver Mellors certainly provided the most interesting romance.
Book of the year:
Nadine: The Child In Time
Rachel: The Child In Time
Rachel: Cal from Middlesex
