2010 – End of Year Thoughts

harry's barHarry’s Bar was our destination for EOY bookclub in 2010. Joined by our newest arrival, the fabulous Sophia, we had a lot to discuss. We found that we had many conflicting opinions on this year’s readings, which we welcomed as it makes for lively and prolonged debate – a nerdy bookclubber’s perfect night!

We agreed there was a lot of disturbing features present this year (characters, scenes and themes) and the relevance of each was always up for discussion.

Sophia: Nip The Buds, Shoot The Kids
Jo: The Sea, The Sea
