IMG_2410What a nice evening we had at book club this month! There was a big, beautifully decorated Christmas tree, homemade cookies and tea on the table and lots of conversation with members we hadn’t seen in a while as well as those new to our group. Oh yes … and there was a book discussion!! As we sipped our tea, we began the diverse discussion of The Unlikely Pilgrammage of Harold Fry, written by Rachel Joyce. The general consensus was that the book was written in the style of “youth literature”, making the book seem a little more simplistic than its intended true meaning. Some felt the author didn’t share enough information about why Harold felt compelled to take the journey in the first place and waiting until the end for the “big reveal” still didn’t tie it all together. Others, however saw beyond the words on the page and could understand why Harold and Maureen had drifted apart and that the journey wasn’t so much about Queenie but more about finding themselves again. While we all had varying opinions and enjoyed discussing the book, none of us felt compelled  to read other works by Joyce.

Our next read is a spy thriller … Restless, by William Boyd. Happy Reading!
